The 1603 cash grant has proven to be a more efficient, lower cost approach to spur additional private sector investment in renewable energy. Continuation of the 1603 cash grant, or its replacement with a new program that avoids the limitations of the tax equity market, will continue to make efficient use of capital and promote lower cost development of renewable energy in the domestic market.

The Importance Of The DOE LGP In Financing Innovative Renewable Technologies

This paper analyzes the importance of the Department of Energy's Loan Guarantee Program in helping innovative renewable energy projects cross the "valley of death." As of January 2011, the loan program has provided conditional commitments to 11 innovative renewable energy projects. Though this marks significant progress, the program is only now starting to fulfill its potential. With its scheduled September 2011 expiration, the loan program will soon lose much of its effectiveness – and the U.S. will lose a main tool for developing important innovative energy technologies.
