The Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Local Government Climate and Energy Program has announced that it will host a three-part webinar series about funding and financing clean energy programs in May and June. The webinars will be held on May 16, May 30 and June 13.


Webinar Information

May 16
11 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.
Part I: Getting Started: Answering Big Picture Funding Questions

This introductory webinar will cover the big picture questions that local governments should consider including:

  • What resources are available?
  • What are the program priorities?
  • How can these programs pay for themselves?
  • What funding is available?

It will guide local governments through these and other questions in the context of their own unique circumstances and illustrate the concepts through case studies that explore how local governments have used both conventional and unconventional methods to gain support, line up partners, and design and implement their funding programs.

Part II: Getting it Funded: Finding Funding for your Clean Energy Programs

This webinar series will explore the how to find sources of funding. This presentation will cover:

  • Seed funding versus sustainable funding;
  • Funding that can be used up versus what must be repaid;
  • Sources of revenue; and
  • Local government case studies that demonstrate how to identify and understand the sources of funding, including grants, energy savings, partnering with the private sector, fees and taxes, leasing agreements, and bonds.

Part III: Keeping it Going: Financing Options for your Clean Energy Programs
