Commercial PACE: Raising Confidence in Savings to Ramp Investment & Demand.
Thursday, January 30, 2014 from 2:00 PM to 3:30 PM (EST)
This 1-hour EDF / PACEnow webinar will include a brief presentation on the Investor Confidence Project (ICP) and efforts to standardize energy efficiency project underwriting to reduce transaction costs, align stakeholder interest, and increase deal flow. A panel discussion will follow, focusing on how Commercial PACE (Property Assessed Clean Energy) programs are using ICP to address the owner and investor projected savings confidence challenge, which has been an impediment to energy retrofit financing nationwide. Moreover, the panel will share how ICP is enabling energy efficiency financing to become a mainstream financial asset class with the high degree of standardization, predictability and scale that investors demand.
We will hear how standardized technical underwriting is leading to significant demand and investor engagement in the Connecticut Commercial PACE program. Next we will learn how Texas “Pace-in-a-Box” is developing a standard PACE model to harmonize Commercial PACE programs ramping up across the state. We will then hear from CleanFund, one of the leading Commercial PACE investors, on how they are leveraging ICP across their portfolio.
This webinar is designed to help PACE administrators, investors, project developers, and building owners, understand how standardization can facilitate multiple stakeholder alignment, ensure underwriting needs are met, and enable energy efficiency investment while lowering transaction costs.
The core webinar content will last 60 minutes, but we will keep the lines open for an additional 30 minutes to ensure time for questions and answers by the panel.
