Potential C2F Project: Energy Efficiency


  • A hotel or manufacturing plant is considering installing advanced energy efficiency systems, either:
    • Retrofitting/replacing equipment before its lifetime; or
    • Building a new facility that is implementing energy efficiency above and beyond business as usual.

Cost Barriers

  • The payback of the projects is beyond the company’s two year payback benchmark for capital improvement investments.

C2F Solution

  • The Canadian Climate Fund can provide debt for the cost of the systems at theinterestrate needed to increase the project’s return to the company’s hurdle rate for these investments.
