Commercial Property Assessed Clean Energy (C-PACE) Webinar #3

The National Governors Association Center for Best Practices (NGA Center) hosted the final in a series of three webinars designed to provide governors’ advisors with information and best practices surrounding the development of Commercial Property Assessed Clean Energy (C-PACE) programs.

This webinar explored considerations around financing PACE programs (including whether and what forms of seed capital to use to capitalize the program), types of bonding structures available, possible types of credit enhancements and more. A discussion around the use of Qualified Energy Conservation Bonds as seed capital was also shared.

As part of NGA Center’s clean energy finance efforts, this webinar series builds upon an earlier experts roundtable that brought thought leaders in the C-PACE arena together to discuss the latest developments in C-PACE programs and administration. The presentations for that roundtable can be found here.
