A Roadmap to Financing Energy Projects

02/27/2017 |

New tool connects FMs with funding sources

A new portal connects building owners and FMs with financiers, research and other assistance for energy-saving projects.

The Better Buildings Financing Navigator, part of the DOE’s Better Buildings Initiative, helps users identify the financing options relevant to their project by providing white papers, technical research and industry advice. FMs can search by topic or answer a few simple questions to receive tailored results. Projects of all sizes in all non-residential building types are suitable.

The tool also connects users with the Better Buildings Challenge Financial Ally community, where they can speak with banks and lenders who are pursuing energy efficiency investment opportunities. The DOE is partnering with 30 of them to commit $5.4 billion in financing.

“We’ve seen the financing community make tremendous progress by innovating models and mechanisms to invest in building energy efficiency,” says Kathleen Hogan, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Energy Efficiency at the DOE. “Now more than ever before, we can bring these smart financing solutions to the market and move forward more rapidly with energy efficiency projects and upgrades.”

Surpass State Energy Requirements with Dual-Cooling Data Center CRAC Technology

See how professionals like you are taking advantage of the highest performing precision cooling system for their computer rooms and data centers, and why Data Aire is fast-becoming the number one choice for facility managers and building owners looking to decrease their energy consumption. 

Data Aire understands how digital technology and data gravity is rapidly impacting and transforming businesses. That’s why they developed ultra-efficient cooling technology to support the most modern (and not-so-modern) data centers.  Learn how One Wilshire in Los Angeles, one of the most advanced carrier hotels today, is surpassing California's strict energy efficiency requirements with Data Aire’s purpose-built system, which provide full-economization for 260 days – almost 72% of the year. That’s a measurable savings! Furthermore, the projected PUE on an annual basis for a full load is at or below 1.2.
