Financing Residential Energy Efficiency with Carbon Offsets
"Financing Residential Energy Efficiency with Carbon Offsets" is a guide to help weatherization or other energy efficiency programs evaluate if and how they can benefit from selling carbon offsets (available for download at www.mainehousing.org/carbon).
This webinar provides information on how to access carbon finance, utilizing the framework established by MaineHousing's weatherization program. Steve Erario, former Carbon Project Coordinator at MaineHousing, will describe how the agency developed and validated an eight-step process to quantify, verify, and sell residential offsets. Mr. Erario will outline lessons learned during MaineHousing's first-in-kind effort, and describe key factors that indicate if your energy efficiency program is a good fit for accessing carbon finance. Full webinar is available below. A text version of just the question and answer section of this webinar is available also.
