WASHINGTON - The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has announced that it will issue a solicitation in June offering up to $10 billion in loan guarantees for energy efficiency, renewable energy, and electric transmission projects.

The $10 billion will be part of a larger $38.5 billion loan guarantee package that will support a variety of energy technologies. Selection criteria for the clean energy projects will focus on the avoidance of emissions of greenhouse gas emissions and other air pollutants; the speed at which technologies can be commercialized; the cost-saving potential for consumers; the prospect of loan repayment; and the potential for long-lasting success of these technologies in the marketplace. To support the launch of the solicitations in June, DOE has also published an implementation plan for its Loan Guarantee Program.
