A welter of US government-backed funding worth billions of dollars is driving a gargantuan green energy buildout in the US. Developers; engineering, procurement, and construction companies (EPCs); original equipment manufacturers (OEMs); and all the associated project and breakbulk logistics service providers — forwarders, heavy-haul and engineered transportation providers, multipurpose and heavy-lift carriers, and many others — are eager to help build the components of this fundamental shift in energy generation. US government financing from Department of Energy programs and potentially through the Export-Import Bank of the United States may provide these projects with critical capital and favorable finance terms that aren’t available in the commercial finance market. Utilizing US government financing, however, requires compliance with laws that provide other strategic benefits to the US. This session will address some of the procurement- and transportation-related requirements that accompany US government financing for projects, with a focus on cargo preference regulations.
