Road-Map to a Sustainable Future:
Aligning Public and Private Market InterestsThe upcoming 3rd Annual ACI Home Energy Leadership Summit will convene leaders from the policy, finance and utility sectors together with the leadership of the home performance industry. This intensive two-day event is designed to explore a future where public policy and private sector interests are aligned to create a robust, sustainable market for whole-house retrofits.
The ambitious goal of upgrading more than 70 million U.S. homes will require an investment of over a trillion dollars. This can only be achieved through a collaboration of public policy with the business owners, utilities, lenders and homeowners who will be required to invest large amounts of capital to reach these goals. While progress is being made; current incentives and regulation are the foundation for a sustainable market for whole-house retrofits in the future. This conference will envision future models operating at scale, and start an ongoing conversation about pathways to market transformation.
The good news is that well-crafted public policies can play a crucial role in driving the market forward. In mature programs we have seen significant reductions in costs on a per project basis, and in analogous industries, such as solar, we are starting to see large scale private investment, based on long term policy horizons and data to prove that these projects can reliably produce energy with low default risk.
As the public subsidies necessary to support the current approach to market development are almost certain to decrease sharply in coming years, it is important that we act now while we still have the resources to shape the market of the future.
This year’s ACI Home Energy Leadership Summit will focus on the intersection of public policy and the private sector investment decisions that are highly data-driven and adverse to uncertainty. Conference sessions will look forward to help develop a vision for the future of the home performance industry and will feature discussions of the type and quality of data, investment returns, and policy positions necessary to attract private investment while achieving the public good.
Featuring important industry keynotes and breakouts focused on the utility sector, the finance sector, and market delivery, this event is for leaders who are interested in shaping the future of the home performance industry.
