2021 U.S. DOE Energy Storage Financing Summit

The two-part virtual 2021 U.S. DOE Energy Storage Financing Summit will focus on operating experience and how that translates into unit and portfolio strategy, providing greater transparency to financial institutions, and promoting deeper insights into this emerging asset class to facilitate further investment.

These studies are part of the U.S. DOE’s outreach effort to the financial industry to promote market development through reducing barriers to entry, reducing transaction costs and promoting wider access to low cost capital.

Speakers will include representatives from the U.S. DOE and industry experts who have experience with the challenges and opportunities of investing in energy storage projects.
