Demand for energy efficiency financing has grown significantly in the past decade. In response, the landscape of available financing products in the market has evolved drastically, with new and specialized options becoming increasingly available. While traditional products (e.g. leases and loans) still account for the majority of the market, specialized products such as Energy Services Agreements (ESAs) and Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) are quickly growing as they are designed to overcome specific challenges that traditional products may not address. Making sense of this new landscape can be a challenge, and JDM’s Joe Indvik will be speaking at a number of events in the coming months focusing on understanding the energy efficiency financing market and how to find financing that works for your organization. Here is a quick summary of where he will be:
2017 ACEEE Energy Efficiency Finance Forum – Chicago, IL – May 21-23rd
Joe will be speaking on a panel titled Commercial Market Insights for Energy Efficiency Financing along with Greg Leventis (Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory) and Jerome Bilodeau (Dunsky Energy Consulting) on Monday, May 22nd at 11 AM.
2017 BOMA International Annual Conference & Expo – Nashville, TN – June 24-27th
Joe will be joined by Brenna Walraven (Corporate Sustainability Strategies) to present Navigating Energy Efficiency Financing: Understand The Market and Find Financing That Works For You.
Greenbuild Conference and Expo – Boston, MA – November 8-10th
Joe will be a part of the How to Recover your Investments in Sustainability session with Abigail Dean (TH Real Estate) and Brenna Walraven (Corporate Sustainability Strategies).
One of the main subjects of Joe’s presentations will be the Better Buildings Financing Navigator, a new Department of Energy online tool that helps public and private sector organizations find financing solutions for energy efficiency projects.
