Every day this week I am uploading a poster taken from the contents of my book on energy and resource efficiency – to help fellow practitioners communicate the benefits and processes that will unlock value in their organizations and sustain change.

Today is day 5 and I am providing a poster summarizing the sources of funding for energy and resource efficiency.

Far too often “we don’t have the money” is cited as an excuse for inaction. And yet, energy and resource efficiency improvements often yield returns much greater than businesses expect from core investments or individuals would get from their savings.

In Chapter 18 of my book I explore many different options to fund projects, their pros and cons and how to choose amongst them. You may be surprised to learn that it is often not money that is the problem, it is being able to unlock money.

Taken together with Chapter 17 on Financial Analysis, I hope to equip the reader with the ability to make a powerful and compelling business case for investment now.
