TRENTON, N.J. (December 1, 2023) –The New Jersey Economic Development Authority (NJEDA) has issued a Request for Expressions of interest (“RFEI”) to identify specific sites, projects, or assets that are interested in financial support from its planned New Jersey Green Fund (“NJGF”). The RFEI can be found here, with responses due by January 12, 2024.

WHAT: The planned NJGF aims to facilitate an equitable clean energy transition in New Jersey by attracting private capital to enable the State to meet its ambitious clean energy goals while also providing measurable benefits to its Overburdened Communities. The NJGF may offer financial products and support to stimulate larger private capital investments for, and deployment at scale of, clean energy technologies within New Jersey. This RFEI will help the NJGF identify parties interested in accessing at least $5 million capital from NJGF for projects primarily located in the State. Projects and assets may fall within the priority categories of clean energy generation and storage, zero-emission transportation, building decarbonization and resiliency, or any other topic related to achieving the State’s clean energy goals. 

WHEN: Responses to the RFEI must be submitted via email to NJGFrfei@njeda.gov no later than 5:00 p.m. ET on January 12, 2024. Questions regarding the RFEI process or content may be submitted via email no later than 5:00 p.m. ET on December 15, 2023.

  • Renewable energy developers & operators  
  • Financial institutions  
  • Corporations 
  • Non-profit organizations 
  • Venture and private equity groups
  • Community-based organizations, including those representing Environmental Justice Communities  
  • Other private entities 

Respondents can submit multiple proposals to the RFEI, or include reference to multiple projects in one comprehensive proposal. Please note, providing a response to this RFEI is not a formal application for funding nor a binding intent to pursue investment opportunities that may be made available through the NJGF in the future. Future opportunities will be made available for Respondents and other members of the public to apply for NJGF funding regardless of whether they respond to the RFEI.
