DOE Loan Programs Office
The U.S. Department of Energy, in support of the Administration’s all-of-the-above energy strategy, issued a draft loan guarantee solicitation on April 16, 2014, for innovative renewable energy and energy efficiency projects located in the United States that avoid, reduce, or sequester greenhouse gases. When finalized, the solicitation is expected to make as much as $4 billion in loan guarantees available to help commercialize technologies that may be unable to obtain full commercial financing. This draft solicitation represents another step in the Department’s commitment to help overcome the financial barriers to the deployment of innovative, clean energy technologies.
The Department welcomes public comment on a range of issues and will consider public feedback in defining the scope of the final solicitation. In addition to initiating a 30-day public comment period, a schedule of public meetings will be posted on the Department’s website.
