CIC Green Innovation Industry Night

Clean energy and efficiency practices are often viewed as dependent on technological innovation, which may be missing the mark. In an era of established technologies, the real catalyst is financial and business model innovation: using financing mechanisms to turn stagnating initiatives or nice-to-haves into actionable change. Tonight’s panel will discuss why these financing strategies can succeed in unlocking capital and moving projects forward where others don’t and the most promising opportunities for direct investment.
