The landscape for implementing energy efficiency projects is rapidly changing, and the need for energy project financing has never been greater. The purpose of this book is to examine the key factors which typically lead to success when structuring financing options for a proposed energy project and getting it approved by top management. You'll find the information you'll need to explore as many financing options as possible, as well as the tools required to make a comprehensive financial analysis of your project. You'll learn about the most effective financing strategies for getting more projects implemented, including such options as performance contracts, power purchase agreements, PACE financing, and others, along with feedback on specific strategies which have been successfully used by others to present projects and get them approved.
