Description: The PACE market continues to grow: more than 200 commercial PACE projects have been completed with nearly $63 million in funded projects as of January 2014. This panel investigates the “drivers of success” of leading PACE programs. Find out what leading programs are doing to maximize their appeal to commercial building owners and financiers. JCI’s Institute for Building Efficiency and PACENow recently completed interviews with PACE program administrators, contractors, investors, and other organizations involved in financing, sourcing and delivering PACE projects. The results of that research will be presented, including a summary of market trends and lessons learned so far regarding the financing model, program design, and marketing and outreach. Individual panelists will provide an in depth perspective on what’s working so far in the markets where they operate
