Financing Green Infrastructure: To P3 or Not to P3? Identifying the Appropriate Project Delivery Model
Opening Remarks: John Chiang, California State Treasurer
Moderator: Peter Taylor, President, ECMC Foundation
The nation’s aging infrastructure is becoming increasingly inefficient and vulnerable to climate change, while public funding for upgrades has become more difficult to come by. In many cases, public-private partnerships (P3s) have arisen as a solution to deliver green infrastructure projects that meet both public and private interests—by benefitting the environment and improving quality of life, as well as demonstrating the viability of advanced products. But do P3s work for every project? What do you need to know before initiating one? And what other options are there? This panel features those who have successfully utilized the P3 model at scale.
