Coalition for Green Capital
The Coalition for Green Capital (CGC) is a non-governmental organization founded by CEO Reed Hundt. The CGC works to advocate tax and finance policies that support long-term investment in energy efficiency and clean energy. The CGC pursues such efforts on the international and national levels, working with both federal and state governments.
The group is an outgrowth of Hundt's efforts with the Obama/Biden Transition Team to promote financing for clean energy and energy efficiency. The CGC was involved in the drafting of Rep. Chris Van Hollen's "Green Bank Act of 2009" which was included in the "Waxman-Markey" bill that ultimately failed to pass in the 111th United States Congress.  Since the failure of the "Waxman-Markey" bill, CGC has focused its efforts on state-level legislation. The CGC was involved in the drafting and passing of Connecticut's Green Bank, entitled the Clean Energy Finance and Investment Authority (CEFIA).  This entity will offer loans to clean energy projects, lowering start-up costs without raising costs for tax payers.
