Clean Energy Finance Program Support

Evaluation and finance: Cadmus blends decades of experience in both of these specialties to bring you the industry’s leading clean energy finance program evaluation team.

Over the past 25 years, we’ve done more than 1,000 evaluations of demand-side management and renewable energy programs. Our cutting-edge finance experience also goes back 25 years, to one of the first on-bill finance programs. By combining these specialized disciplines, we’ve been able to perform some of the industry’s most significant finance program evaluations. This wealth of experience provides a strong foundation for tailoring an evaluation to meet your needs and deliver insightful, useful, and actionable results.

We also excel at designing finance programs. For example, in one of the largest projects ever undertaken to develop finance programs across the United States, Cadmus supported the U.S. Department of Energy with technical assistance on finance program design and implementation for more than 100 state and local governments.
