In this Eyes on Washington Policy Minute, Government Energy Finance Team member Taite McDonald explains how energy and clean technology companies can develop and execute strategies for access to government grants, loans and contracts across multiple state and federal agencies, including the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), U.S. Department of Agriculture and U.S. Department of Defense (DOD).

For larger companies, Ms. McDonald suggests low-cost financing or creative deal structures to advance innovative technologies in a way that may not progress without participation from the federal government.
