The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory have announced that the Energy Transitions Initiative Partnership Project (ETIPP) is accepting applications from remote, island, and islanded communities for technical assistance to transform their energy systems and increase energy resilience.
ETIPP’s collaborative, community-driven approach will help ensure remote, island, and islanded communities have the skills and tools needed to accelerate their energy resilience planning in the face of extreme weather events and changing economic conditions. Applicants are encouraged to consider community-driven project proposals using energy technologies that can provide resilience and other community benefits, including energy efficiency, hydropower, microgrids, solar, wind, geothermal, storage, tidal or wave energy, and grid infrastructure needed to support electric transportation, among other industries. Applications are due by April 15, 2022.
