SFIP is a proud sponsor of the October 12-14 Applied Solutions Coalition Conference in Santa Fe.
From the ASC Conference website:
The main goal of the Applied Solutions Coalition is to develop a mechanism for design and funding of large, integrated renewable energy infrastructure projects. Projects should incorporate most, if not all, of the four main legs of sustainable infrastructure – transportation, renewable energy, energy and water conservation and greenhouse gas emissions reduction. Incorporating multiple aspects of sustainable infrastructure allows the technologies to build upon each other’s strengths and leverage each effect for maximum impact.
Traditional methods of infrastructure funding do not take into account the additive resource reduction benefits of such integrated projects nor do they take into account the size of funding necessary to implement such large and relatively new ideas. Capital markets and Capital Hill are not familiar with this way of thinking yet so it is the goal of Applied Solutions Coalition to forge a path to bring these new project ideas to fruition.
