April 27, 2017 - New York, NY
The year 2017 marks a critical juncture for this 5th annual event. Originally billed as the “Sunshine Backed Bonds Conference”, this event has been renamed to reflect the growing number of renewable energy and green assets ripe for securitization. Solar, in particular distributed solar, remains one of the most promising sectors in terms of potential securitization deal volume. However, the latest surge in the issuance of green bonds and property assessed clean energy loans makes it clear that ABS investors with a sustainable mandate now have a multitude of new investment opportunities.
This event will expand uponits roots in commercial and residential solar to delve deeper into the PACE and green bonds sectors. We will explore which states are adopting PACE programs, and even the potential for PACE expansion overseas. We will also take a deep dive into the concept of a ‘green bond’, including how and when the label is applied and which issuers are seeking the label.
Given this expanded reach and coverage, we are expecting the 2017 gathering to grow even larger as green investing and improved solar, PACE, and green issuer access to capital becomes a priority amid global action.
Securitization will serve as the catalyst to propel green financing forward, and to help realize important global environmental goals. This event is a must attend for those seeking to meet the key stakeholders and leaders who are at the very heart of this movement.
