Where Will DOE's Loan Program Make the Next Climate Tech Investments?

The U.S. Department of Energy is crucial for funding, researching, and testing emerging energy tech.

In March, Jigar left his position at Generate Capital (and this podcast) to go into government service and run the loan programs office. Jigar has $40 billion in authority to back a wide selection of climate technologies — and he’s been working on the primary round of investments with those dollars.
