Financing continues to be one of the top challenges in the marketplace for energy efficiency retrofits and renovations. In efforts to address this challenge, DOE created the Financial Ally program in the Better Buildings Challenge. Financial allies support energy efficiency investments by making their finance products available and demonstrating their approaches through published implementation models. Since the launch of the program, financial allies have invested $5.4 billion in energy efficiency projects and have committed to investing $5.5 billion.
