ULI Cincinnati will be hosting a Brown Bag Lunch on December 18, 2018 on the topic of PACE Financing and Its Impact on Commercial Real Estate. This member’s only free event, with lunch provided, is intentionally kept small to maximize the exchange of information.

PACE finance is an innovative solution for building owners and commercial real estate developers to increase access to capital for clean energy projects while reducing operating costs. PACE finance pays for 100% of a project’s costs and is repaid for up to 30 years with an assessment added to the property’s tax bill.

This session will help you learn how to leverage low-cost, third-party capital to achieve 100% positive cash flow from the start. PACE finance is available throughout Ohio (inland Dayton), Kentucky and more than 30 other states. Eligible PACE project development includes Cincinnati and Columbus.

  • Commercial buildings like offices, hotels, retail and industrial buildings; multi-family residential buildings; and even nonprofits

  • A broad range of project types, including new construction, deferred maintenance, major renovation, redevelopment and tenant improvements

  • Energy efficiency, renewable energy water conservation projects, spanning lighting, HVAC, plumbing, insulation, elevators, rooftops, windows, solar panels and more

Donovan Energy will be leading this session for us with Andy Holzhauser and Jeff Martin, both partners at Donovan Energy.

With roots in both the finance industry and energy industry, Andy Holzhauser focuses on developing innovative financing solutions for clean energy projects, procurement, market analysis, education and advocacy for solar energy, energy policy, and program development. Nationally, Andy serves on the Board of Directors of PACENation, the national trade association focused on developing the Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) financing marketplace. Locally, Andy is a board member of Green Umbrella and an alumnus of the Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber’s C-Change and Leadership Cincinnati programs. Andy began his career in accounting and finance roles with Deloitte, then served as controller for 3CDC, before he focused full-time on advancing the clean energy market. In 2009, he founded the Greater Cincinnati Energy Alliance (GCEA), a non-profit economic development agency that has led the investment of more than $50 million in energy efficiency and renewable energy projects in residential and commercial markets. He was integral in drafting and lobbying for PACE finance legislation in both Ohio and Kentucky, which successfully brought PACE to the region. Andy holds a Bachelor of Science in Business and a Master of Accountancy from Miami University, where he recently served on the alumni board.

As a partner and large-scale energy project leader at Donovan Energy, Jeff Martin leverages his extensive experience in construction management, project design, scheduling, permitting, and zoning to guide clients through energy projects of any size and scale. From developing and retrofitting energy efficient buildings to new technology, Jeff creates and manages plans that help organizations pay less for energy, be more efficient as they use energy, and ultimately, generate renewable energy of their own. With a Bachelor and Master of Architecture from Miami University, Jeff committed over 13 years to the non-profit real estate development of Cincinnati’s most iconic and transformative projects of the last decade in the Central Business District and Over-the-Rhine. In his role as VP of Project Management with 3CDC, Jeff and his team collectively executed 1.2 billion dollars of development including Fountain Square, Ziegler Park, and Mercer Commins. Most recently, he oversaw the $48 million renovation of Washington Park including the 5 to 8-acre expansion and the addition of the underground parking garage; the $143 million restoration of Music Hall; and the 30,000 SF commercial space and 280,000 SF office building construction of the 84.51° building.
