The U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) Energy Transitions Initiative Partnership Project (ETIPP) provides resources and technical support for remote, island, and islanded communities seeking to transform their energy systems, reduce their economic risk, and ramp up their resilience.

This multi-year, cross-sector initiative leverages ETI’s proven framework to address community energy challenges, build capacity, and accelerate the sharing of best practices and innovations.

The partnership project builds on tools and resources developed by ETI and leverages the support, experience, expertise, and technical assets of local stakeholders, four DOE offices, four national labs, and five community-based partners.

Collaborating with communities to understand their energy and infrastructure challenges, goals, and opportunities, ETIPP's broad coalition empowers remote, island, and islanded communities to proactively identify and implement strategic, holistic solutions tailored to their needs. 

For information about how communities can apply to participate in this multi-year collaborative effort, contact Aaron Ng and Stephen Walls.
