TRIO Roundtable


Innovative Approaches to Leveraging Capital for Energy Efficiency Investments in MUSH Buildings

Availability of capital, emerging technologies and innovative transaction structures provide ample opportunities for utility customers to finance energy efficiency (EE) upgrades. The MUSH (Municipalities, Universities, Schools and Hospitals) market has traditionally been at the leading edge for energy efficiency improvements, often leveraging publicly subsidized financing programs; however these programs are limited in total available funding. Considerable opportunities exist within this sector to finance comprehensive EE projects, yet many projects remain unfunded.

Come engage in a dynamic discussion with California IOU representatives and industry leaders in technology, policy, financing, development and more, as they discuss the current state of the market, barriers to EE project implementation, and strategies for aligning EE financing providers with building owners that are making those investment decisions.

Who Should Attend?

Building owners and operators, policy makers, project financiers, technology developers, entrepreneurs, project developers, implementers, ESCOs.

Agenda Topics:

  • EE Projects: Current State of the EE Project Market and the Demand for Financing
  • Emerging Technologies and Approaches to Financing EE Projects in MUSH Facilities
  • Overcoming Investment Hurdles: Putting Ideas into Action
