Loan Guarantees

To encourage the development of clean sources of energy, the Energy Policy Act of 2005 established U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Loan Guarantee Program. Guarantees can be issued for loans of up to 80% of a project's total cost and are targeted only for projects that avoid, reduce, or sequester greenhouse gas emissions and employ "new or significantly improved technologies as compared to commercial technologies in service in the United States."
