Colorado Energy Efficiency Finance Summit
I am a member of the Colorado Retrofit Working Group Finance Committee at the Governor’s Energy Office (GEO). Yesterday we held a Finance Summit with the intent of gathering bankers, investors and industry leaders together to discuss the need for financial solutions for the emerging market for Energy Efficient homes and buildings. The summit was held at the Hyatt Regency Hotel on 15th Street in downtown Denver.
Governor Bill Ritter was the keynote speaker followed by Gil Sperling from the DOE. Other speakers included Stephen Ponce-Pore from the Bank of Colorado—pioneer of the Colorado Energy Star Mortgage—Vasudha Desikan from LiUNA Corporate Affairs, Brettt Johnson from GEO, Ann Livingston—Boulder County Sustainability Coordinator. Other speakers included Adam Stenftenagel of Snugg Home, Elizabeth Million from Bank of America, John Stoval from Ecobroker and John Beldock from AEEREP.
We had 160 pre-registered but actual attendees was about 120. It was a great conference and brought out many of the challenges and opportunities facing those of us in the industry. Financial solutions are key to stimulate market growth for energy efficient homes.
The committee members were honored with a short meeting with Governor Ritter just before the conference started. We had some photos taken which I’ll post within a few days.
