Tuesday, May 21, 2024

Notice of Request for Information (RFI)
U.S. Department of Energy Loan Program Office: Title 17 Clean Energy Financing Program

DOEE is requesting input from interested parties in the District of Columbia (“the District”) to identify potential opportunities for financing under the U.S. Department of Energy Loan Program Office’s (LPO) State Energy Financing Institution (SEFI) program to inform DOEE program design and policy making.

This Request for Information (RFI) seeks responses from clean energy project developers, asset owners, or other institutions looking to decarbonize their operations, financial institutions, and other relevant parties to:

1. Inform the design of financing efforts or other related activities led by DOEE, other instrumentalities of District Government, or other relevant government authorities operating within the District of Columbia that support decarbonization efforts within the District of Columbia.

2. To solicit initial feedback on the potential use of state funds from an established SEFI to implement the goals of DOEE and District Government, while leveraging federal financing from LPO. Specifically, input is requested that can inform how to best leverage the DOE LPO SEFI-Supported category of the Title 17 Clean Energy Financing Program. Through this program LPO can augment state-administered clean energy programs providing additional financial support to projects that align federal energy priorities with those of U.S. states like the District.
