DOE Opens Applications for Remote, Island, and Islanded Communities Seeking Technical Assistance To Plan For, Withstand, and Recover from Energy Disruptions 

Applications for the Energy Transitions Initiative Partnership Project (ETIPP) open today for remote, island, and islanded communities seeking technical assistance to transform their energy systems and lower their vulnerability to energy disruptions.   

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory are providing assistance through a community-driven approach to ensure isolated communities have the skills and tools needed to accelerate their energy resilience planning in the face of increasing risk of extreme weather events, vulnerable energy infrastructures, and changing economic conditions. The ETIPP network provides technical assistance, for all renewable technologies, that prioritizes local challenges, values, and goals. The program also provides communities access to experienced and expert community leaders, regional partner organizations, academic organizations, and DOE’s national labs to help them succeed in addressing local clean energy and energy resilience challenges.  

“The assistance provided through ETIPP is crucial in supporting the clean energy transition in remote, island, and islanded communities, which are especially vulnerable to high energy costs and the most severe effects of climate change,” said Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary for Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Kelly Speakes-Backman. “ETIPP is designed to work alongside these communities to help address energy challenges by sharing DOE’s technical expertise with regional partners that understand local priorities, concerns, and values.”  

Selectees under this announcement will become part of ETIPP’s second cohort of communities, and if selected, will engage with the ETIPP network for 1218 months. Communities have until April 15 to complete the ETIPP application. Applicants are encouraged to consider community-driven project proposals using energy technologies that can provide resilience and other community benefits, including geothermal. Review the eligibility criteria and contact an ETIPP regional partner with questions about eligibility and the application process on the ETIPP website
