The U.S. Department of Energy's Energy Transitions Initiative (ETI) advances self-reliant island and remote communities through the development of resilient energy systems. Relevant outcomes include:

  • Local resource reliance
  • Institutional, social, and economic resilience
  • Enhanced institutional capacity
  • Lower costs and increased predictability
  • Replicable approaches.
