PACENation Summit 2023 Recap

The 2023 PACENation Summit is in the books! In early June, PACENation brought together over 250 members and industry professionals at the Yale Club of New York City to make new connections, catch up with old friends, and share their expertise throughout this two-day national event.

In a mix of panel discussions and collaborative working group sessions, attendees explored the most pressing topics in PACE today, including workshops dedicated to broadening the market for small-balance C-PACE, enlightening conversations focused on PACE program standardization, the emerging role of banks—both large and small—in the PACE market, the impact of state and federal policy, and much more. Rohit Aggarwala, New York City’s Chief Climate Officer, even broke news during our lunch fireside chat session with the announcement of the city’s proposed C-PACE program rules for new construction properties.

This year’s Summit was PACENation’s first in-person national gathering since the pandemic, and while we had organized numerous virtual events in that time, we know nothing can substitute for the PACENation Summit. We received tremendous feedback from attendees who found value in the scheduled content, dynamic networking opportunities, and all of the spontaneous hallway conversations that this event made possible.

Thank you to all Summit sponsors, speakers, and attendees for contributing to this groundbreaking event! We’re so excited to meet again next year.
