Jigar Shah is the director of the US Department of Energy's (DOE) Loan Programs Office (LPO), which offers competitive financing for large-scale energy infrastructure projects in the country, with a focus on new-energy technology and job creation. The LPO has issued more than $35 billion in loans and loan guarantees in its 17-year history, with some ups and downs along the way. Shah spoke with Energy Intelligence on the sidelines of CERAWeek by S&P Global about what his office has been up to lately, what more he wants to see from the clean-energy sector, and even some of the mistakes he sees new companies making.
