Financing the Clean Energy Transition and the Role of State and Local Green Banks

Financing the transition to a clean energy economy represents both an enormous challenge and an unprecedented opportunity. The frameworks and instruments of finance are evolving to meet this need, and “green banks” are playing an important role on the national level in some countries and on the state and local level in the US. Curtis Probst, Co-CEO of NYCEEC (the oldest local green bank in the US, based in NYC), will discuss these important trends and their role in financing the clean energy transition.
