IPFA Future Leaders Network Americas

Exploring Advanced Manufacturing and Onshoring Trends in Battery and Renewable Energy

As the United States accelerates its commitment to a sustainable future under the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) and the Investment Tax Credit (IRA), the spotlight is on non-recourse finance as a catalyst for innovation in the battery and renewable manufacturing sector. Pioneering initiatives like the Department of Energy's Loan Programs Office (DOE LPO) are reshaping the landscape, providing crucial financial support to propel groundbreaking projects forward. However, navigating this path is not without its challenges. The industry grapples with issues such as weak offtakes, where uncertainties in demand can create hurdles in securing financing. Join us as we discuss how to move our industry forward and take a step closer to an energy revolution.

Learning Objectives: 
- Explore the diversity of this growing market, which includes more than batteries
and solar panels.

- Understand how industrial policy aims to increase national security by nearshoring
advanced manufacturing and critical supply chains.

- Understand how industrial policy aims to bridge the gap between R&D and
commercialization and ultimately drive down the cost of critical technologies.

- Understand key challenges in adapting project finance to the specific challenges of
manufacturing projects.
