ANS Members, please log in to register for this webinar.
ANS members are invited to a special event featuring a one-on-one interview between ANS Executive Director/CEO Craig Piercy and Jigar Shah, Director of the DOE’s Loan Programs Office (LPO).
Register now and hear about the ambitious goals of the Biden administration to decarbonize the power sector by 2035, which was highlighted in Shah’s article in the November issue of Nuclear News. Shah will also discuss how nuclear can be an important part of the decarbonized energy mix in the U.S. and how he believes the LPO can support the administration’s target.
About Jigar ShahJigar Shah was most recently co-founder and President at Generate Capital, where he focused on helping entrepreneurs accelerate decarbonization solutions through the use of low-cost infrastructure-as-a service financing. Prior to Generate Capital, Shah founded SunEdison, a company that pioneered “pay as you save” solar financing. After SunEdison, Shah served as the founding CEO of the Carbon War Room, a global non-profit founded by Sir Richard Branson and Virgin Unite to help entrepreneurs address climate change. Originally from Illinois, Shah holds a B.S. from the University of Illinois-UC and an MBA from the University of Maryland College Park.
