About the Data

Annual MWh/Gallon:
Annual generation of electricity in megawatt-hours (MWh) or gallons of biofuel (project type dependent).

20-year avoided GHG:
Tons of greenhouse gases that might have otherwise been emitted from other energy sources over a 20-year period if not for implementation of the project.

Annual avoided CO2:
Annual tons of carbon dioxide that might have otherwise been emitted from other energy sources if not for implementation of the project.

Annual avoided SO2:
Annual tons of sulfur dioxide that might have otherwise been emitted from other energy sources if not for implementation of the project.

Annual avoided NOx:
Annual tons of nitrogen oxides that might have otherwise been emitted from other energy sources if not for implementation of the project.

Annual “cars off the road”:
The number of passenger vehicles with equivalent annual tons of greenhouse gases emissions that might have otherwise occurred from other energy sources if not for implementation of the project (as based on EPA MOBILE6.2 Average passenger vehicle = 5.20 metric tons CO2e).

Household equivalents:
The number of residential households with equivalent annual tons of carbon dioxide emissions that might have otherwise occurred from other energy sources if not for implementation of the project (as based on EIA figure 14,796 lbs CO2 emissions per year for an average household).

About the ATVM Loan Program

Advanced Technology Vehicles Manufacturing (ATVM) loans support the development of advanced technology vehicles (ATV) and associated components in the United States. They also meet higher efficiency standards. (learn more)

The ATVM Loan Program is currently accepting applications.

ATVM Eligibility

ATVM loans may be made to applicants who are technically and financially eligible in order to finance the cost of:

  1. reequipping, expanding or establishing manufacturing facilities in the United States to produce ATVs or qualifying components or
  2. engineering integration performed in the United States of ATVs or qualifying components.

In order to be technically eligible for an ATVM loan, an applicant must be either:

  1. an automotive manufacturer satisfying specified fuel economy requirements or
  2. a manufacturer of qualifying components.

In order to be financially eligible for an ATVM loan, an applicant must be financially viable without the receipt of additional federal funding for the proposed project.

Please see Section I of the “Updated Guidance for Applicants to Advanced Technology Vehicles Manufacturing Loan Program” for more information on general eligibility requirements.

If you are not eligible for the ATVM Loan Program, click here to learn about several other government programs that offer support for clean energy projects.

Sample ATVM Projects

Visit the ATVM projects section of our projects page website to learn more about existing ATVM projects.

Here are two sample ATVM projects:

  • Ford Motor Company is using a $5.9 billion loan to upgrade factories across Illinois, Kentucky, Michigan, Missouri, and Ohio and to introduce new technologies that will raise the fuel efficiency of more than a dozen popular vehicles. The project will convert nearly 33,000 employees to green manufacturing jobs.
  • Nissan is using a $1.4 billion ATVM loan to retool their Smyrna, Tennessee, manufacturing facility and construct one of the largest advanced battery manufacturing plants in the United States. The plant will be capable of producing 200,000 advanced-technology batteries a year.
