Clean Energy Finance for the Large Commercial Sector - Structures and Strategies

This section of the guide reviews several financing structures and related uses of American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) funds that are being developed to finance large, commercial-sector building projects for clean energy improvements.

The large commercial buildings sector offers tremendous energy savings, emissions reductions, and economic investment potential. It is, therefore, a worthy target for government-supported clean energy finance programs. The energy efficiency and renewable energy industry is looking for financing solutions to unlock this value, and use of ARRA funds can be instrumental in demonstrating new and scalable financing mechanisms. Financing practices are rapidly developing in this sector.
