National clean energy finance roadmap
MCG worked with the Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS) to develop a national renewable energy financing roadmap. The roadmap explored potential polices to promote innovative clean energy market development through financing vehicles such as green banks, Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs), Master Limited Partnerships (MLPs), tax-exempt bonds, and securitization. Each of these mechanisms has the potential to dramatically lower project financing costs, significantly expanding renewable power generation in the United States. MCG conducted in-depth consultations with national and international energy finance experts in support of the roadmap development process, ensuring the final product was informed by the insights of some of the most forward thinking innovators in the world of renewable energy finance. The final roadmap was published by UCS and submitted as testimony to the U.S. House Ways and Means Committee.
