PACE Financing – A Paradigm Shift in Funding Energy Efficiency & Renewable Energy Projects in the US and Beyond
Ringlein’s presentation will discuss how to fund renewable energy projects, as well as those that increase energy efficiency and conserve water, using a new and innovative program – Property Assessed Clean Energy Financing. Better known as PACE, Ringlein’s presentation will detail how paying for these projects is one of the most significant barriers to implementation.
In the paper that EAG submitted for the conference, the mechanics of PACE and its use throughout multiple verticals is discussed in detail. Topics include:
- How PACE overcomes common barriers to funding energy efficiency projects
- Unique benefits of PACE financing
- Real-world case studies
Webcast Details the Top Benefits of a PACE Strategy!
EAG has also created a corresponding webcast in which Ringlein explains the strategies and benefits of PACE, and how the financing model can be used to improve business profitability while reducing energy waste.
Since renewable energy qualifies for Property Assessed Clean Energy, the webcast is valuable for those unable to attend the Orlando event or who desire additional information following the on-site presentation. Described as The Top 10 Benefits of a PACE Strategy, the webcast is a powerful tool for any business with the goal of energy independence and increased profitability.
A short list of the top 10 benefits detailed during the webcast includes:
- 100% Project Funding – Both Hard and Soft Costs
- Long Term Financing at Fixed Rates – Lower Annual Payments
- Cash Flow Positive – Immediate Savings
- Increased Property Marketability – Improved Environment, Lower Vacancy Rates and Easier Tenant Acquisition and Retention
- Appeals to Tenants and Landlords – Financially Benefits Both Sides of the Equation
The webcast, while geared towards facility managers, is valuable to anyone involved in planning, financing, or approving energy efficiency, water conservation, and renewable energy projects. At the end of the presentation each participant will be able to download a 16 page document detailing how the PACE strategy can be beneficial to:
- Business Leaders
- Commercial and Industrial Building Owners
- Community Economic Development Teams
