ENGIE Resources and OpTerra Energy Services, which it acquired at the beginning of last year, have introduced ENGIE Advantage, a financing platform for energy efficiency and sustainable programs for large commercial and industrial customers.
ENGIE Advantage, according to the press release, enables improvements to be made while offsetting capital investment. No deposit is necessary either, the company says. The program, ENGIE says, offers on-bill financing for projects with payback as long as five years, the ability to finance projects at multiple sites through a single payment plant and other features.
Earlier this month, the Helios Exchange launched what it claims is the world’s first online platform for retrofit project development. The platform, the release says, facilitates many elements of energy retrofit projects, including development, finding insurance and financing. The platform offers “project simulations and business cases with free public access to over 150,000 commercial buildings,” the press release says.
