PACE Financial Servicing is excited to announce that Jessa Coleman will be a featured panelist on C-PACE financing at the 2019 Better Buildings Summit, which will take place on July 10th and 11th in Arlington, VA. This annual national event, hosted by the U.S. Department of Energy, is an opportunity for clean energy leaders and professionals to come together to explore and collaborate on clean energy mechanisms and ideas. This two-day event will be full of networking, education, and collaboration amongst peers who share an interest in clean and renewable energy. In addition to informative speakers, there will be a variety of interactive events which attendees are able to participate in, including “Ask-An-Expert” sessions and panel discussions. The event is geared towards clean energy professionals and property owners who wish to further their knowledge and impact on the world as they discuss building resilience, workforce development, renewables and zero energy, strategies for success, emerging technologies, and more.
Three of these industry experts will speak about Commercial Property Assessed Clean Energy (C-PACE) financing. Rich Dooley, Community Energy Coordinator for Arlington County, VA, Jessa Coleman, Programs Manager for PACE Financial Servicing (PFS), and Keith Derrington, COO of Recurrent Innovative Solutions will share their knowledge about how C-PACE works, why it is becoming increasingly popular, and the many benefits it brings. In particular, Jessa Coleman will focus on program administration and the role of the program administrator in a C-PACE program. Ms. Coleman is an expert on this subject because PFS is the program administrator for the MD-PACE program, the Montgomery County C-PACE program, and is a partner to the Virginia PACE Authority in its administration of the Loudoun County, VA PACE Program. With the summit hosted in Virginia this year, her remarks and examples will be relevant and local. Throughout this summit, there will be more opportunities than ever to learn about how C-PACE programs are crucial to the environmental and economic development of commercial property by financing energy efficiency and renewable energy projects.
The topics which will be covered throughout this summit are extensive including, but not limited to, emerging financial trends in energy efficiency and renewable energy, rural approaches to energy efficiency, resilience applications for low-income families, and how to achieve high renewable energy goals. Take your impact on the environment and economy through clean energy to the next level by attending this summit. Not only will it provide excellent networking opportunities, but it will allow for the collaboration of brilliant and determined minds. The immense amount of knowledge that will be shared, discussed, and used throughout this summit is irreplaceable, which is we encourage you to sign up and secure your spot today.
