  3. INTRODUCTIONS Rob Watson is an international leader in market transformation for green buildings, known by many as the “founding father of LEED.” Under Rob’s direction, LEED became the largest and fastest-growing international standard by which green buildings are measured. Rob’s inspiring career has seen tenures at the Natural Resource Defense Council. Rob Watson The ECON Group , one of Rob’s various current organizations, is a building optimization company with the unique ability to CEO & Chief optimize both environmental performance and economic return Scientist throughouth the building lifecylce. Their LeenOps platform bridges the gap between building sustainability and the bottom- line.

  6. 1. TRENDS The innovations driving the building industry towards sustainability

  7. TAKING STOCK The Problem The Solution LEED was a good start, but the Green is the norm in new industry is structurally incapable of construction, though existing stock is delivering full sustainability. stubbornly hard to penetrate. ◍ Still missing the forest for the trees Wellness will be a good hook. Buildings still use the most energy of all sectors, though less than 20 years ago, in spite of adding 30% more floor Multiple innovations in design area. technology and finance coming together to leverage fractal networks.

  8. BUILDING A MOVEMENT Innovations Transforming the Market Industry and the Way We Think ◍ Design tools finally catching up. ◍ Industry needs dramatic consolidation. ◍ Architectural Solar (BIPV) beginning to take-off. ◍ Buildings as strategic assets vs. cost centers. ◍ PACE provides access to better capital. Finally capitalizing sustainability vs. expensing it.

  9. AHEAD OF THE CURVE Ø Big Data or Big Garbage? Ø Self-Sufficiency is Growing Ø Building as Branded Service Inter- and Intra-connection of data-sharing devices is growing wildly, but on a foundation of questionable data. Nonetheless, the network effect will lead to good mix of independence and interdependence. Utilities beware! Emphasis on building services means asset utilization with grow significantly w/opportunity for financial innovation. Good for environment, but new construction will contract— almost exclusively for replacements.

Fu et al. 2016 *2016 data based on .49 cent module price in SEIA Solar Market Insight Report 2016 Q4 and NREL 2015 BOS Data.

  16. INCREMENTAL COST $1.17 / Watt - Baseline Installation Cost * + $0.62 to $3.50/watt Incremental BIPV Module Cost ** $1.79 - $4.67/Watt : Total Incremental Cost ($27-$70/sqft @15.6% Effic.) Traditional Solar Installation Cost (Fu et al. 2016) 5 MW Utility PV = $1.82 100 kW Commercial PV = $2.29/W Residential PV = $2.93/W * Includes typical PV labor without module & racking install (~$0.05/watt or 70% of install labor) ** Cell, encapsulant and additional glass costs.

  18. A SYMBIOTIC RELATIONSHIP ◍ Architectural Solar enables C-PACE to encompass more of a building’s cost ◍ C-PACE enables financing for integrated applications otherwise hard to finance

  19. 3. Solar PACE FINANCING Innovative finance solution enabling accretive efficiency and renewable projects in commercial buildings

  20. ABOUT CLEANFUND CleanFund is a nationwide financing platform that solves big challenges for the $60 billion energy efficiency and solar market for U.S. commercial properties. We make renewable energy, water conservation, energy efficiency, seismic strengthening and other building improvements easy and affordable for commercial property owners. Our products leverage a new financial technology – property assessed clean energy ( PACE ) – that is based upon centuries-old land-secured financing. Payments are billed and collected in the form of property taxes.

  21. WHAT IS PACE? ◍ PACE exists because lowering the carbon footprint of the built environment is in the public interest – just like other bond financings that show up on property tax bills (schools, roads, fire stations). ◍ The power of PACE is based upon two simple provisions: Secured as a parcel assessment • Billed and paid via ordinary property taxes • ◍ PACE has achieved strong growth nationwide: Legislation passed in 33 states & D.C. • 45 active PACE programs nationwide • PACE Legislation Passed Active PACE Programs Source: PACENation

  22. WHAT PROBLEMS CAN PACE SOLVE? Barrier Solution Upfront project cost/lack of funds 100% third party financed Tendency that only “low-hanging fruit” Up to 30 year financing enables deep projects get done retrofits to be accretive Property assessment treated as an Inability or unwillingness to take on operating expense, not debt additional debt Split incentives Tenants share cost/savings in NNN leases Transferable to next owner Owner might be selling building

  23. WHAT CAN BE FINANCED? Energy Efficiency Air Sealing & Ventilation Envelope EV Charging Insulation Windows Elevator Modernization HVAC Systems Refrigeration Building Controls Lighting Compressed Air Water Conservation Renewable Energy Low Flow Fixtures Solar Grey/Black Water Wind Rainwater Harvesting Fuel Cell Irrigation & Controls Cogeneration Most Soft Costs Seismic (CA) Permits Seismic strengthening Architectural, Engineering Plans improvements Measurement & Verification may qualify
