BUILDING A BRIDGE TO BANKABILITY
Through its Title 17 Clean Energy Financing Program and Advanced Technology Vehicles Manufacturing (ATVM) Loan Program, the Department of Energy’s Loan Programs Office (LPO) has financed a portfolio of innovative clean energy projects and advanced technology vehicle manufacturing facilities across the United States. LPO’s portfolio has supported job creation and is preventing harmful CO2 pollution while enhancing American competitiveness in the global economy.
Learn more about LPO's portfolio in the FY 2022 Annual Portfolio Status Report.
LPO PORTFOLIO AT A GLANCE
LPO currently manages a portfolio comprising more than $28.2 billion of loans, loan guarantees, and conditional commitments covering 17 active projects and 5 conditional commitments (i.e., Monolith, Ioneer Rhyolite Ridge, Redwood Materials, Li-Cycle, and Hestia).
For information on projects that have exited the portfolio, as well as other individual projects within LPO’s portfolio, please visit Portfolio Projects. Cumulatively, these loans and loan guarantees have resulted in more than $50 billion in total project investment to date.
LPO PORTFOLIO IMPACT
LPO’s Title 17 Clean Energy Financing Program requires that projects avoid, reduce, utilize, or sequester greenhouse gas or air pollutant emissions, while eligible vehicles under the ATVM Loan Program must demonstrate improved fuel economy.
Throughout its history, LPO electricity generation projects have combined to generate over 97 million MWh cumulatively, which is equivalent to displacing over 43 million metric tonnes of CO2. Meanwhile, ATVM-supported projects have cumulatively displaced 2.9 billion gallons of gasoline (in first year of vehicle deployment), or the equivalent of 26 million tonnes of CO2.
In addition to catalyzing access to debt capital and reducing emissions, projects financed by LPO have been creating jobs. In total, these projects have created 45,270 permanent jobs.
LPO PORTFOLIO MANAGEMENT
LPO’s Portfolio Management Division protects taxpayers interests by closely monitoring each project through construction, completion, and operation to ensure the terms and conditions of the loan documents are satisfied until the loan has been repaid in full.

LPO PORTFOLIO PERFORMANCE
Although its mission, which includes financing innovative clean energy projects technologies, carries some degree of financial risk, LPO has maintained strong financial performance—even when compared with private financing of conventional energy projects in the United States. For each transaction, LPO’s team conducts rigorous due diligence that is comparable to, if not more stringent than, what is done in the private sector.
