REFF Wall Street 2023 – US DOE lined up


IJGlobal is particularly pleased to announce that Jonah Wagner – chief strategy officer at the US Department of Energy (DOE) Loan Programs Office (LPO) – will be speaking next month at our long-established New York energy conference, REFF Wall Street.

Wagner will be joining a panel focused on creating a bankability roadmap for emerging energy transition technologies, which is all the more important as the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) has just marked its first anniversary.

He has been at the US DOE’s LPO since August 2021 working in the office that has almost $400 billion in available loans and loan guarantees, offering financing for projects focused on a broad range of clean energy and decarbonisation technologies.

Wagner will be joined on the panel – which will be moderated by Nathalie Kosciusko-Morizet, senior partner at Antin Infrastructure Partners – by:

  • Himanshu Saxena – chair and chief executive of Lotus Infrastructure Partners
  • Andrew De Pass – head of renewable and Sustainable Investments (Americas), Vitol Group
  • Jonathan Yellen – investment director, Climate Investment

REFF Wall Street is now in its 20th year and is working with sister title Power Finance and Risk to host this event on 20 and 21 September (2023) at etc.venues, 360 Madison Avenue.
