Good Evening Denver CRES Members!
I am a co-organizer for the Meetup group Energy Efficiency Colorado, a group also focused on sustainability and energy efficiency for folks in the Denver/Boulder area. Our next event is Tuesday, June 14th in Denver and wanted to send out an invite since both our groups have similarly aligned sustainability goals. We have a great speaker and it will be an excellent opportunity to grab a drink and talk more about our goals of energy efficiency and sustainable business. See Event Details.
Presentation: Financing Energy Efficiency Projects
Alison Wise will be presenting on the topic of financing energy efficiency projects. With tight credit markets and institutional denial of energy financing vehicles what are our options to put significant dollars to work saving energy with 'shovel ready' projects and making reality of the new energy economy? Alison will discuss the current state of energy efficiency financing and then take us to new frontiers of what's possible when communities and regions are motivated to take action in lieu of legislation.

About Energy Efficient Colorado:
Energy Efficiency is about reducing unnecessary waste to cut costs and carbon emissions. To create a more sustainable future we need to squeeze waste out of our buildings, businesses and behaviors.
From lighting and HVAC to building envelope and behavioral changes - where do we get the highest impact for the lowest dollar? How do we leverage our programs and expertise to create the most change?
This meetup seeks to be the forum to share lessons learned, best practices, tools and technology, for both commercial and residential energy efficiency projects. We welcome anyone working to implement energy efficiency in Colorado - energy professionals, business owners, sustainability practitioners, energy managers, local government representatives, etc.
We hope to see you there!
