Financing Urban Building Efficiency

Monday, April 3rd: 16:45 - 17:45 - Building 313

HOST: SEforALL Building Efficiency Accelerator

In 2016, 23 cities worked with the Building Efficiency Accelerator (BEA) to formulate building efficiency policy commitments, demonstration projects and tracking approaches. These cities now need financing and private sector engagement to bring their commitments to fruition. This session will see a number of City leaders pitch project proposals to financial institutional leaders with finance mechanisms that could be leveraged by cities or building owners seeking investments in building efficiency. The ensuing dialogue will aim to identify gaps and opportunities for the BEA and partners to assist cities with additional project preparation to help the city projects become investor ready.
