Accessing the New $80B In
Federal Loan Guarantees
For Renewable Energy, Transmission and Some Biofuels Projects


Thursday, March 5th, 2009
1:00 – 2:30 p.m. EST

The economic stimulus bill authorizes the US Department of Energy to guarantee roughly $60 to $80 billion in loans to finance renewable energy projects, factories that make equipment used in such projects, electric transmission projects and some biofuels facilities. The idea is for the government to provide a carrot to induce the private sector to resume lending to such projects. The guarantees will only be issued for projects that can be under construction by September 2011.

Many developers are already preparing to line up outside the Department of Energy to apply for the guarantees. There are many unanswered questions about how quickly the government will start writing guarantees and how the program will work.

Listen to a discussion among several people close to the new program on March 5, 2009 from 1:00 to 2:30 pm EST.
