The DOE’s Upcoming Loan Guarantee Solicitation for Renewable Energy and Efficient Energy Projects.
Tuesday, June 17, 2014 from 1:00 – 2:30 PM ET
The U.S. Department of Energy recently issued a draft loan guarantee solicitation for renewable energy and efficient energy projects and facilities. The draft solicitation is targeted to support projects that substantially reduce greenhouse gas emissions and utilize innovative new technologies that are catalytic and replicable in their respective markets. Between $2.5 billion and $4 billion in loan guarantees are expected to be made available via the final solicitation. Guaranteed loans would generally be provided by the federal government in a direct transaction with the borrower, although it is possible to work with a commercial lender as well.
DOE is currently considering comments on the draft solicitation, including following public meetings in locations around the country. DOE is expected to issue the final solicitation in June or July of 2014, with applications being accepted soon thereafter.
