    2017 ACEEE Energy Efficiency Finance Forum | ACEEE

    Energy Efficiency Finance Forum Overview

    Energy efficiency has taken on a new level of importance both domestically and internationally. Efficiency has long been a key element in utility resource planning, business competitiveness, and household energy budgets. Now it is slated to play a central role in meeting domestic targets under the Clean Power Plan and international agreements to reduce carbon emissions, both formalized in the past year. 

    Efficiency is widely recognized as the lowest-cost pathway to meet these goals, but in order to bring it to the scale necessary, global investment in efficiency will need to exceed $10 trillion over the next 20 years. The efficiency revolution will be impossible without effective financing options.

    For over a decade, the Energy Efficiency Finance Forum has brought together practitioners, researchers, energy producers, and consumers to explore innovative models for deploying capital in efficiency markets. Finance Forum participants have a great opportunity to learn about which models are working and why, and to source financing deals for efficiency projects.

    To learn more about Finance Forum sponsorship opportunities, please contact financeforum@aceee.org

    Likely Participants: 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.
