Cleantech Corridor: Wall Street Meets Green Street (April 4, 2011)

(McCarter & English, LLP 245 Park Ave, 27th Fl, Ny Ny 10167)

How can two of New York’s major industries – Finance and Real Estate – prosper by collaborating on energy savings projects? While there have been some high profile “green” projects, the vast majority of New York’s buildings remain old and energy inefficient. Turning New York’s buildings into Smart Buildings will become one of New York’s biggest businesses and our experts will become global leaders. New York is at the forefront: Transforming buildings so that they use energy more efficiently and use cleaner sources of energy represents a multi-billion dollar endeavor. This is especially important as the NYC’s Greener, Greater Buildings Plan takes effect. Come listen to experts from major banks and other leading practitioners in the nascent energy efficiency financing space discuss the opportunities and challenges of lending into energy efficiency and renewable energy projects in New York.
