Over the past decade, LPO has closed more than $35 billion of deals across a variety of energy sectors. In the latest budget discussions, DOE has noted that it still wields $160M of already appropriated funds (from the Recovery Act of 2009) which can be leveraged up, perhaps 5x or 10x, by paying the “budget cost” of a loan.

You may have clients looking at energy or energy-related projects that qualify for DOE loans or loan guarantees. Armed with information about the process and how best to cut through to key factors that will qualify an eligible project and get it approved could place your firm at the leading edge of energy innovation.   

Join Andrew Paterson and Walter Howes to walk through immediate but limited opportunities to leverage DOE financing on projects that are on the cusp of commercialization. You'll gain insights on an expedited and focused project formulation approach and also learn more about:

  • The DOE Loan Program Process:  Part I, Part II, and the stages of review
  • Industrial sub-sectors for projects in the Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy space
  • Critical Success Factors for worthwhile projects with Innovative Technologies

***Projects must focus on Innovative Technologies and Systems and while projects in the $50M - $500M range for total project cost would be optimal, terms remain to be negotiated for each project. Some potential examples:

  • Innovative energy efficiency in water treatment (could be a combination of technologies)
  • Recycled materials and more efficient, innovative energy use for conversion
  • Energy storage (with emissions savings) or fuel cells, which enable less fossil use
  • Energy-intensive industries: chemicals, aluminum, heavy manufacturing, and food processing
  • Specialty buildings in a critical sector, such as for first responders, university R&D, and resilience facilities
