Sign Up Now for June 27 Online Class on How to Qualify an Innovative Private Sector Project for DOE Loans Before Funds are Used Up

Your firm may have clients looking at energy or energy-related projects (in the $50 to $500 million range) that qualify for Department of Energy (DOE) loans or loan guarantees. Arming yourself 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.

In the June 27 online class How to Navigate the DOE Loan Program for that Innovative Project, Andrew Paterson and Walter Howes Verdigris Capital will walk you through immediate but limited opportunities to leverage DOE financing on projects that are on the cusp of commercialization.

In order to qualify for the loans, projects must focus on innovative technologies and systems, such as:

  • 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
  • In energy intensive industries, such as chemicals, aluminum, heavy manufacturing, or food processing
  • Specialty buildings in a critical sector, such as for first responders, university R&D or resilience facilities

During this 90-minute session, you will learn 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

All webinar participants will receive an introductory template for a focused approach and an overview of the process and key points.
