The Chicago Clean Energy Alliance is proud to announce our first educational program:

Practical Advice for the Clean Energy Entrepreneur:  Guaranteeing Performance, Maximizing Incentives, and Leveraging the Smart Grid

More and more building owners are realizing that energy efficiency retrofits, demand management, and on-site production solutions make sense from both an environmental and business perspective. As clean tech entrepreneurs are developing business solutions to meet this demand, a number of critical business issues must be explored:

  • Should my company guarantee performance? If so, how?
  • What are the key contractual issues that will need to be negotiated with customers?
  • What financing approaches can be used for energy efficiency and on-site production projects?
  • How can public incentives be maximized to improve a project's pro forma?
  • How can these projects tie to broader public and private initiatives such as the Smart Grid?

This session will provide practical advice for the clean energy entrepreneur on these critical business issues through a panel that has extensive experience on a wide variety of energy efficiency, demand management, and renewable energy projects. The session will include a presentation from the panelists and a Q&A session. Please stay after the panel discussion for a cocktail reception at the offices of Holland & Knight.
