Find Money in the Water System Budget – Internal Energy Revolving Funds

How can water systems find ways to pay for projects to reduce their energy costs?  Our colleagues at the Environmental Finance Center Network, in tandem with their AWWA partners, have a new approach for you to consider.

This webinar will focus on the Internal Energy Revolving Fund (IERF) concept, also known as an “Energy Bank” or “Green Revolving Fund.”  In this model, an organization uses the fund to pay for energy improvements to its internal operations (e.g. pumps and motors, lighting, HVAC equipment, solar panels, etc.) and then uses the avoided energy costs from one project to help pay for the next project—thus the fund “revolves.”  This webinar will look at sources of money to seed the fund initially and ways to structure it for long-term success.

There is no cost to participate in this web event, but you must register in advance.
