The priority technologies, as identified in the HLT Fund Implementation Guidelines, for the energy sector are:

  • Climate change mitigation/adaptation technology
  • Criteria air contaminants (CAC) reduction technology (air pollution mitigation)
  • Smart grid technology (includes all types of storage as appropriate)
  • Energy efficiency technology
  • Renewable energy technology
  • Advanced energy system planning and analytical tools (i.e., geographic information system or GIS)
  • Waste-to-energy

As of December 2017, one energy project has been financed by the HLT Fund.
