The U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Energy Transitions Initiative Partnership Project (ETIPP) works alongside remote, island, and islanded communities to transform their energy systems and increase energy resilience through strategic energy planning and the implementation of solutions that address their specific challenges.
ETIPP defines remote, island, or islanded communities as follows:
- Remote communities are isolated from population centers and as a result, have limited access to centralized energy systems.
- Island communities are isolated from the mainland by waterways.
- Islanded communities are not grid-tied to large transmission-scale power systems and as a result, experience frequent issues with power quality or reliability. These communities may or may not be categorized as "remote" or "island."

ETIPP communities are competitively selected to participate, with an anticipated 12- to 18-month project per community. Use the interactive map below to explore ETIPP energy resilience projects in remote and island communities across the United States.
