ABSTRACT
The article reports that the U.S. government is stepping in to provide funding for alternative and renewable energy projects while developers wait for private investors to re-enter the market. State energy offices are being joined by the federal government in issuing grants for research and development and now, loan guarantees for larger projects through the Department of Energy. This federal money is being used as a bridge until private money regains confidence in these technologies.
