ACEEE Energy Efficiency Finance 101: Understanding the marketplace

Received this email from the ACEEE.   It appears to be the first in a series of articles.  Since everyone seems to want financing, thought I would pass this along as it might be very useful.

 

Dear Hal,  

 

The number of energy finance programs has increased dramatically in recent years. As the variety of programs expanded, so too has the diversity of financial institutions participating in local programs. Each of these different types of financiers has specific strengths, weaknesses, and areas of focus. Only by understanding these unique attributes can the best partner for each individual program be identified. In Energy Efficiency Finance 101: Understanding the Marketplace, an ACEEE white paper, we highlight the types of financing partners in the marketplace and offer a guide to their individual interests, risk tolerances, and place in the financial services industry. This is one of a series of papers from ACEEE that offers tools to make it easier for states, municipalities, utilities, and private lenders to learn from past experience and develop more effective energy efficiency programs.
