Federal Clean Energy Funding and Financing Opportunities

The U.S. Department of Energy supports a number of clean energy loan and financing programs. Join this webinar to learn more about these programs and how they can help you – whether you are a startup energy business looking to launch a pilot project, a company with proven technology that needs help reaching commercial scale, or a state, local or tribal government looking for funding resources for energy projects. 

The USDOE has over $40B in loan authority through various programs, with loans starting at $100M with 25-year terms and a 2% interest rate. Some of the programs can be used to pay for innovative deployment of equipment as well as for commercial business expansion. Right now, much of this money is limited to on-road vehicles and charging, but there is legislation pending to broaden the funding scope to include offroad and MHD vehicles. 

Learn more about these DOE financing opportunities and gain insights on developing a strong proposal, from both USDOE speakers and first-hand from a loan recipient.
