The Net Zero Task Force Working Group on Incentives & Financing Tools is focused on identifying building sectors that offer the most opportunities for energy savings or renewable energy generation, but for which the greatest barriers to action exist. While energy efficiency retrofits and low carbon construction result in energy savings and financial paybacks in the near and long term, financing tools and incentives are used to offset the issues around upfront costs of implementing these practices. This Working Group will develop a series of recommendations for how financing tools and/or could be most effectively introduced to motivate action among building owners. The group can identify specific program models, target audiences, delivery methods and potential partnerships or opportunities to leverage existing programs.
