“I hope to prove to people that [the United States] can build big things again.”

— Jigar Shah

As head of the Department of Energy’s (DOE) Loan Programs Office (LPO), Jigar Shah oversees hundreds of billions in loan authority to finance the ambitious energy deployments needed to accelerate the clean energy transition at scale.

On Tuesday, June 20, RFF President and CEO Richard Newell sat down with Shah to dive deep into the lessons he learned as a clean energy entrepreneur, how that is informing his approach at DOE, and the vision for how public and private finance can work together to underwrite the US energy transition at scale.
