Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (May 16, 2007)

The Department of Energy proposes policies and procedures applicable to DOE’s loan guarantee program authorized by Title XVII of the Energy Policy Act of 2005. Today’s proposed rule, when final, also will further the President’s Advanced Energy Initiative.
Title XVII authorizes the Secretary of Energy to make loan guarantees for projects that ‘‘avoid, reduce, or sequester air pollutants or
anthropogenic emissions of greenhouse gases; and employ new or significantly improved technologies as compared to commercial technologies in service in the United States at the time the guarantee is issued.’’
