The DOE’s Upcoming Loan Guarantee Solicitation for Renewable Energy and Efficient Energy Projects
Recorded Tuesday, June 17, 2014:
1:00 - 2:30 pm Eastern US Time
The U.S. Department of Energy recently issued a draft loan guarantee solicitation for renewable energy and efficient energy projects and facilities. The draft solicitation is targeted to support projects that substantially reduce greenhouse gas emissions and utilize innovative new technologies that are catalytic and replicable in their respective markets. Between $2.5 billion and $4 billion in loan guarantees are expected to be made available via the final solicitation. Guaranteed loans would generally be provided by the federal government in a direct transaction with the borrower, although it is possible to work with a commercial lender as well.
DOE is currently considering comments on the draft solicitation, including following public meetings in locations around the country. DOE is expected to issue the final solicitation in June or July of 2014, with applications being accepted soon thereafter.
The draft solicitation aims to support projects in five key renewable energy and efficient energy technology areas:
- Advanced Grid Integration and Storage
- Drop-in Biofuels
- Enhancement of Existing Facilities
- Efficiency Improvements
Projects utilizing one or more of these technologies must avoid, reduce, or sequester air pollutants or greenhouse gas emissions, and the technology itself must be new or significantly improved compared to commercial technology currently in service in the U.S.
The speakers on this webinar have assisted numerous new-technology energy companies in DOE loan guarantee transactions. Topics to be covered during this webinar include:
- Project Eligibility
- Application Procedure and Criteria
- Program Fees and Overall Transaction Costs
- Interaction with Other Government Programs
- Other DOE and USDA Financing Programs
The webinar will also address a number of DOE LGPO FAQs as a result of Wilson, Sonsini, Goodrich & Rosati’s recent interactions with DOE.

How It Works
Single Connection: $245.00
Additional Connection at the same Organization: $150.00
A site connection allows a single connection to the web conference. That connection is open to any number of users in a collaborative setting. Because there are no travel expenses and only a single registration fee is required, each additional participant lowers the cost per participant significantly.
By purchasing a site connection, you can invite as many people as you would like to view and participate in the session from a single location. Set up the session in a conference room and project the presentation and chat on a large screen. You also have rights to distribute copies of the presentation materials to everyone involved. Please note that audio is received via the phone line and must be broadcast to your group.
If for any reason a relevant stakeholder cannot co-locate for the session, we encourage you to include that person by purchasing an additional connection at the reduced fee of $150 per session. This will ensure that every member of a team receives the same relevant, timely information in the most efficient way. If you have any technical or purchasing questions, please contact us at (818) 888-4444.
CANCELLATION, REFUNDS & CREDITS
Should you be unable to attend, a refund, less a $50 administrative charge, will be made for cancellations received via letter or fax at least 3 working days before the event. We regret cancellations will not be accepted after that date. However, we will be pleased to transfer your registration to another member of your company or credit the registration fee to another Infocast conference if you register within 6 months from the date of this conference. In the event the conference is canceled, Infocast’s liability is limited to the refund of the conference registration fee only.
