Targeted areas include waste to energy, grid integration and storage, drop-in biofuels, energy efficiency improvements, and enhancement of existing facilities (such as repowering). The DOE’s Loan Programs Office has specifically identified technology areas that are poised for commercial-scale development and that can be easily replicated.
