Overview

Energy development is the fastest growing area of development finance nationwide. From new production facilities and renewable energy source development to the retrofitting and renovation of existing buildings to support energy efficiency, energy finance has become a driving force in the economic development community.

CDFA’s Intro Energy Finance Course explores the wide range of tools available for financing energy projects, including bonds, tax credits, revolving loan funds, grant programs, and more. This course will cover how new energy production/generation, energy efficiency, retrofitting and support programs are used throughout the country to encourage investment in large and small projects alike.

The Intro Energy Finance Course begins with an overview of the complex energy development industry and introduces attendees to the terminology and technology driving this movement. We’ll then examine the entire spectrum of energy financing solutions from bonds to revolving loan funds and innovative incentive programs available to businesses, home owners, development professionals, investors, and government entities. This course will also explore programs and resources available through the federal government to support energy development. This course is essential for public leaders, economic development professionals, financial experts, and anyone working to address energy development challenges.
