2018 Energy Efficiency Finance Forum

May 21 - 22, 2018
    DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel, Tarrytown, NY

    How do you finance energy efficiency? The 2018 Finance Forum explored innovative models that discovered what works, and why. Our dynamic conference provided attendees with the tools and knowledge to get started on financing projects that save money, reduce costs, and create jobs. ACEEE's Energy Efficiency Finance Forum is the only conference of its kind; serving to bring implementers and financiers together to discuss how to scale the industry up.

    At the 2018 convening, over 200 participants dove into how to serve rural customers, why the as-a-service model may see spectacular growth in the next few years, and the panoply of financing affordable multifamily homes.

    For over a decade, the Finance Forum has brought together a diverse mix of participants including: Clean-tech and energy efficiency investors; financiers; real estate professionals; CDFIs and other mission-driven lenders; entrepreneurs; utility staff; local, state, and federal agency personnel; energy service company personnel; policymakers; NGOs; energy efficiency program planners, operators, and evaluators; and marketing experts.
