The National Association of State Energy Officials (NASEO), in partnership with the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), invites you to participate in a series of discussions that will explore how the COVID-19 pandemic is impacting state energy financing programs, and what State Energy Offices can do to support the continuation of these programs during and after the economic recovery. The discussion series will examine six financing mechanisms over eight calls in the coming months. The first set of calls, which will facilitate a discussion on the current state of the market and challenges to the industry for each financing mechanism, are listed below. A second set of calls examining potential solutions and upcoming trends will be scheduled for later this spring. NASEO will use the insights gained from these calls to develop a set of briefs that State Energy Offices can use to quickly understand both the issues surrounding different financing mechanisms from COVID-19 and the actions they can take to support financing in 2021 and beyond.
The schedule for the first set of calls is as follows:
Energy Savings Performance Contracts (ESPC) – January 26, 2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. ET.
State Energy Revolving Loan Funds – February 16, 2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. ET.
Residential Loan Programs and On-Bill Financing – February 18, 2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. ET. here.
Green Banks and Commercial Property Assessed Clean Energy (C-PACE) – February 23, 3:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. ET.
