Pure Risk: Federal Clean Energy Loan Guarantees


"Up until the controversy surrounding the default of the Solyndra Corporation on its federal clean energy loan guarantee in November of 2011, such guarantees enjoyed broad-based bipartisan support.  Not any longer.  First, President Obama failed to include any monies in his proposed fiscal year 2013 budget to Congress for such loans. Next, fiscal House conservatives held a series of oversight hearings on the Solyndra debacle. 

"Pure Risk examines what risks remain for the billions of dollars of loan guarantees that have already been made and that the Department of Energy plans yet to make.  The volume includes the perspectives of leading energy experts from the fiscal Right to the environmental Left and includes analysis done by the U.S. Congressional Budget Office."
