Financing: How to fund efficiency and renewable energy projects

Perhaps your building has been benchmarked for years, or maybe you're still working to meet Energize Denver’s June 1st benchmarking deadline. Either way, benchmarking often uncovers opportunities to improve the efficiency of your building, which reduces operational costs while increasing building competitiveness in the business environment and owners' returns on investment. But what is the best way to finance worthy efficiency and renewable energy projects?

Join the Denver 2030 District, in partnership with the Alliance for Sustainable Colorado, from 7:30-9am on Wednesday, June 21st to learn about available financing options. During this workshop, local experts will discuss Colorado's new Commercial Property Assessed Clean Energy (C-PACE) program, as well as the "efficiency as-a-service" model. Attendees will learn essential details about:

  • The C-PACE program, including how it works, the financing structure, and the role of key stakeholders in C-PACE deals

  • “Efficiency-as-a-service” financing, its applications, and the accounting benefits of this approach

Breakfast and coffee will be served. Space is limited, so register today to save your seat.
