On March 15, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) released a report stating that the Department of Energy will likely not use all of the $16.6 billion remaining in the Advanced Technology Vehicles Manufacturing (AVTM) loan guarantee program. The program is for manufacturers of fuel efficient vehicles and their components. While the Department is still accepting applications, there are no applications under “active” consideration. However, that excess authority cannot be transferred to other loan programs that have active applications.
