The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Technical Assistance Project (TAP) for state and local officials is offering a Web seminar on how to use funding from the 2009 Recovery Act to establish a revolving loan fund for energy efficiency and renewable energy.
The presentation will take place Wednesday, August 26, from 3 to 4:15 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time, and is titled "Revolving Loan Funds: Basics and Best Practices."
The presenters will be:
Samuel Booth, senior project leader at the DOE National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), where his work focuses on project development and finance.
