- Excerpt from Introduction:

One year ago, we published our first white paper on energy efficiency finance with the twin objectives of introducing the subject to those for whom it was new, as well as discussing the principal concepts and methods for implementing energy efficiency finance with those already steeped in the subject or about to enter the market. That first primer remains a good starting point for anyone unfamiliar with energy efficiency finance. The purpose of this edition is to continue the conversation and, in particular, to examine where we are, what we have done, and where we are going.
