Deploying Capital to Provide Greater Energy Access & Affordability
3:15 PM - 4:30 PM
Can creative approaches to making energy efficiency more affordable also make it more accessible? In times of limited resources, incentives that leverage financing can be attractive alternative to grants and rebates. But does that keep energy efficiency out of reach of those who could most benefit from lower energy bills? Not necessarily. Leading energy efficiency programs have successfully made savings more affordable and accessible for years. To meet our sustainability goals, we need to leverage their experience and ensure that next-generation programs serve everyone, especially those in rural and less-developed areas. <b>Moderated by:</b> <i>Dan Bresette, VP of Policy, Alliance to Save Energy</i>. <b>Speakers:</b> <i>Dr. Holmes Hummel, Founder, Clean Energy Works; Said Mouline, General Director, ADEREE</i>.
