DOE Creates Clean Energy Impact Investment Center

June 18, 2015 By Linda Hardesty

DOE Energy ManageIn February 2015, the White House launched the Clean Energy Investment Initiative to catalyze expanded private sector investment in technologies with the potential to reduce carbon pollution.

To support this initiative, the DOE’s newly launched Clean Energy Impact Investment Center will provide:

  • Single Point of Access for Information: The center will make information about DOE programs accessible and more understandable to the public, including to mission-driven investors such as foundations, university endowments and institutional investors.
  • Technical Assistance: The center will share research and analysis produced by DOE and its National Laboratories on relevant developments in clean energy technology.
  • Information on Early-Stage Projects and Companies: DOE currently has programs including the Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (ARPA-E), Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR), Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR), and others that help to fund and accelerate emerging early-stage technology projects and companies. The center will aggregate and make available existing, public information on entities currently engaged in partnerships with DOE.
  • Connections to Additional Relevant US Government Programs: The center will include information about energy and climate programs at other government agencies.

Moving forward, DOE will work to mobilize a broad range of philanthropists and impact investors to scale up investments throughout the energy innovation pipeline.
