A Discussion with the U.S. Export-Import Bank on Green Finance and its New Domestic Financing Program

Holland & Knight Webinar

Holland & Knight attorneys came together with special guests from the Export-Import Bank of the United States (EXIM) for a discussion on climate finance opportunities and EXIM's new domestic financing program.

In a move to strengthen U.S. supply chain resiliency, the EXIM board of directors unanimously approved a new domestic financing program, "Make More in America Initiative," on April 14. The program will support the establishment and expansion of U.S. manufacturing facilities and infrastructure projects that would facilitate U.S. exports. This is a significant expansion of EXIM's financing capabilities. As the U.S. faces urgent supply chain issues in critical industries, the program offers a new funding option for U.S. manufacturers in critical areas such as renewable energy, energy storage, semiconductors and wireless communications equipment, as well as ports and other domestic infrastructure projects that would help facilitate exports.

During this webinar, the group covered the range of project support that EXIM has traditionally offered, discussed the new domestic financing program and how to take advantage of it, and outlined EXIM's support for renewable energy projects around the globe and what they are looking for in potential domestic renewables deals.

Topics covered:

  • Overview of EXIM's traditional financing products and solutions
  • EXIM's support for renewable energy projects around the world
  • Overview of the new "Make More in America Initiative" domestic financing program
  • Opportunities for domestic renewable energy projects under the new program
