LAKE CITY, Colo. (PRWEB) November 10, 2017
The opportunity to incorporate energy efficiency into new commercial construction projects has never been better. Technology is advancing at a meteoric rate. Costs for energy efficiency products and systems have declined so much that they are now at or beyond price parity with conventional products. Enhanced codes are requiring new levels of energy efficiency in the commercial, multi-family, industrial, and residential sectors. And creative financing solutions for energy efficiency projects are proliferating.
Energy efficiency investment is exploding—according to Navigant Research, $64 billion was invested in the U.S. in 2015 into building performance upgrades (including building design, building envelope enhancements, heating and cooling, lighting and equipment, and information technology). This growing demand for energy efficiency is spurring the proliferation of diverse in financing options.
This session will explore the spectrum of financing options available for commercial projects that incorporate energy efficient design, products, and technologies, as well as strategies that are working and challenges that builders and developers are facing. Topics covered will include products that lenders look for when financing energy efficiency projects, players in the market, and available financing options for commercial projects.
This webinar will take place November 15, 2017 at 2:00 p.m. and registration is now open at https://www.greenbuildermedia.com/financing-options-for-commercial-energy-efficiency-projects
