This project is coordinated with Clean Energy Group's Clean Energy Finance Project to assist states to improve their clean energy program effectiveness by providing access to advice and expertise from the private financial sector on how states can best leverage their public funding and develop new financing tools to attract and support greater private investment in clean energy projects. This is particularly important because of the private financial credit challenges facing projects and also because of the states have federal stimulus program funding for projects.

Through this project, Clean Energy Group is providing technical assistance, webinars, and new finance toolkits designed to assist states to (1) build greater understanding of how the private financial sector views clean energy projects today, and (2) explore use of innovative, flexible financing tools that can leverage available state clean energy funds.
