About the Event

Property Owners are experiencing unprecedented external pressure to respond to climate issues from equity investors and government mandates. Market demands for green buildings presents an opportunity to position real estate portfolio for superior returns versus non-responsive competitors, but limited CAPEX constrain opportunities.

Institutional investors and large capitalized sponsors are entering the commercial PACE (property assessed clean energy) market seeking solutions for new construction, renovations, and ESG portfolio issues. This webinar will present an overview of C-PACE funding mechanics utilizing case studies of C-PACE to illustrate utilization in development, recapitalization and rescue to illustrate the limitations and benefits of C-PACE over traditional debt financing. Still a nascent market, C-PACE represents an opportunity for early adopters.
