Driving Economic Development Through Energy Efficiency 

Buildings account for nearly half of a state’s energy consumption, which can make energy costs a major portion of state operations budgets. Programs that leverage the market to improve building and outdoor lighting efficiency can help states reduce operational costs while inducing economic development, freeing up state money for other uses. 

This webinar will explore how states can support innovative financing and public-private partnerships to drive efficiency upgrades in publicly owned buildings and street lighting.
