Energy Transitions Initiative Partnership Project (ETIPP) Community Technical Assistance—Apply by April 15

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), in partnership with the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), is soliciting applications for community technical assistance through the Energy Transitions Initiative Partnership Project (ETIPP). ETIPP works alongside remote, island, and islanded communities to transform their energy systems and increase energy resilience.

Competitively selected communities will receive substantial technical assistance from the ETIPP network on energy analysis and planning to advance community-driven energy transitions. The ETIPP network combines the technical expertise of DOE and its national laboratories with the local insights and experience of regional partner organizations to identify and implement solutions that address community needs and goals.

Interested applicants are encouraged to review the application guidelines and eligibility criteria on the ETIPP application web page, register for the ETIPP Webinar (Feb.16, 12 p.m. Mountain Time), and contact an ETIPP regional partner with questions. Applications are due by April 15, 2022.
