This case study examines the efforts of several state renewable energy funds to promote renewable energy use in green buildings. These efforts fall into two categories: targeted funding for renewable energy systems used specifically on green (or at least energy-efficient) buildings, and general green building promotion. The states that are covered include Massachusetts, New York, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, New Jersey, Wisconsin, Oregon, Illinois, and Ohio.

This paper is part of a series of clean energy fund case studies prepared by Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and Clean Energy Group, under the auspices of the Clean Energy States Alliance.
