Energy and Green Building Finance

High upfront costs can keep energy efficiency and renewable energy (EERE) projects from ever happening. Cadmus works with governments, utilities, businesses, and nonprofit organizations to develop programs that provide initial funding options and remove financial hurdles.

While familiar forms of funding such as rebates and revolving loan programs still have their place, newer options can better leverage available resources and provide much faster results. Among them are:

  • Credit-enhanced private lending (loan loss reserves)
  • Property assessed clean energy (PACE) financing
  • Tariff- and loan-based on-bill financing
  • Energy-efficient mortgages
  • Qualified energy conservation bonds (QECBs) and other tax-credit bonds

Many of the innovations in program financing are funded by large and small U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) grants. As a prime DOE contractor providing technical finance assistance, Cadmus is at the leading edge of this rapidly evolving specialty. Given our experience and expertise, we can help clients:

  • Design their financial programs
  • Identify potential lenders
  • Solicit proposals from potential lenders
  • Assess and select one or more lenders
  • Agree on program documents
  • Create program marketing, public relations, and outreach materials and campaigns
  • Manage, monitor, and evaluate their programs

Cadmus is ready to provide exactly the help our clients need, from turnkey solutions for an entire EERE financing program to support focused on one or more program components.
