Market-Based Financing Resources

Project Financing

The financing mechanisms listed here are led by the private sector. These offerings may be readily available for your energy efficiency project, and indicate the diversity and creativity of the private sector in helping owners realize the value of energy efficiency improvements.

The private sector has developed a variety of energy efficiency financing tools that are intended to address risks associated with capital investments for energy performance. While the public sector often starts or supports these tools, they are fully market driven.  

As an owner, you can take advantage of these mechanisms in many ways, including combining them to create diverse capital stacks and leveraging multiple tools to full benefit. There may be tremendous advantage in pursuing these approaches collaboratively with other owners.
