Request for Proposals: Building Decarbonization – Opportunity for Financing Assistance

MassCEC seeks proposals of innovative financing solutions to support commercial building retrofit projects (including, but not limited to office, mixed use, 4+ unit multifamily residential, retail, institutional projects) that would result in a building that is consistent with Massachusetts’ net zero 2050 greenhouse gas emission goals by eliminating onsite combustion of fossil fuels for heating, domestic hot water, and cooking and implementing current best practices for energy efficiency, including establishing a well-insulated and low-infiltration envelope. 2050-Ready Buildings may also incorporate solar, storage, or other demand response/distributed generation technologies
