Clean Energy Matchmaking Forum, IV
Tuesday, December 3rd
4:00 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.
Hartford Marriott Downtown
200 Columbus Boulevard - Hartford, CT
The Clean Energy Matchmaking Seminar, IV (MMIV) will feature residential and commercial and industrial contractors delivering energy efficiency and renewable energy solutions to customers. It will highlight the importance of providing easy access to affordable private capital and information on incentive programs. The event will include Perspectives from the Capital, State of the Industry, and break-out sessions for residential and commercial and industrial contractors and financiers.
The event will begin and end with networking opportunities for contractors interested in joining forces with other contractors and financiers. For example, a residential solar PV contractor may be interested in partnering with an HVAC contractor and looking to finance projects through the Smart-E Loan, or a commercial solar PV contractor using the ZREC program may be interested in partnering with an energy efficiency contractor by using C-PACE and delivering deeper energy savings. The participants will have the opportunity to interact with each other and learn how others are building their businesses by combining energy efficiency and renewable energy all the while accessing private capital to finance the energy improvements.
Pre-Program Workshop 3:00 - 4:00 p.m.
