2022 Energy Efficiency Finance Forum

May 23 – 25, 2022

    How do we finance a rapid scaling of deep building retrofits and other energy-saving initiatives? The 14th Energy Efficiency Finance Forum will tackle this question, acknowledging the vital role that financing will play in dramatically reducing energy use and greenhouse gas emissions over the next 30 years. 

    In interactive virtual or in-person sessions (your choice), attendees will explore creative and innovative ways to finance projects that are essential for reducing energy waste, saving money, creating jobs, and meeting climate goals.  

    They will collaborate and network with other industry leaders. Attendees will learn about successful projects that are emerging across the United States that cover energy efficiency as a service and other pay-for-performance finance structures.

    For more than a decade, the Finance Forum has brought together a diverse mix of participants, including clean-tech and energy efficiency investors; financiers; real estate professionals; community development finance institutions and other mission-driven lenders; utility staff; local, state, and federal officials; policymakers; NGOs; energy service company personnel; energy efficiency program planners, operators, and evaluators; and marketing experts.
