Given the current state of capital markets, start-ups are wondering what sources of lending are available for initial large scale manufacturing or projects and what role can and should government play (for example, through loan guarantees and grants) in “picking winners” and lowering the hurdle for new clean energy technologies to attract commercial capital and gain traction in the market.
