DOE will Free up Billions for Transmission

April 28, 2021

Above, Secretary Granholm introduces some of the key players in rolling out energy innovation, in particular, Jigar Shah, who is now head of the DOE’s Loan program.

Having met Jigan once, I can understand why people are excited about him taking the helm of the Loan program. No one understands the big picture, and all the players, better than Jigar.

    Although Jigar has left the podcast The Energy Gang because of this new job, there are many good episodes to listen to that are informative and relevant.

      Episodes are ~1 hour long but it’s only once a week, so it’s worth a try.
      I’ve subscribed and downloaded everything since Jan 14, 2021 and will work it into my daily mix. Here’s hoping….

    Exactly how little of what is needed in $8.25 billion I guess is the question?

    The Texas wind transmission lines from West Texas cost over $7billion.

    If that skimpy $8.25b provides jobs plus local market happiness, further funding will be easier.
