Title 17 Clean Energy Financing – Innovative Energy and Innovative Supply Chain

Under the Title 17 Clean Energy Financing Program, the Department of Energy (DOE) Loan Programs Office (LPO) finances projects that support clean energy deployment and energy infrastructure reinvestment, aiming to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and air pollution. Title 17 was created through the Energy Policy Act of 2005, then reauthorized and amended in recent legislation such as the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) of 2022. Total funding for Title 17 is more than $300 billion. This financing is open to projects that deploy innovative clean energy technologies at commercial scale or employ innovative manufacturing processes or technologies at commercial scale. These loans aim to encourage early deployments that de-risk subsequent deployments. The program applies to a broad array of projects, including renewable thermal technologies.
