As part of the nation’s Investing in America agenda, DOE announced $26 million for eight projects to demonstrate how solar power, wind energy, energy storage, and other clean energy resources can support a reliable and efficient U.S. power grid. Funded by the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, the projects will deploy innovative clean energy technologies at 15 sites across the country to build and support a resilient grid that automatically adjusts to changing demands and disruptions, providing Americans everywhere peace of mind in the event of intentional or unanticipated interruptions to the power grid.

WETO is supporting a project with GE to demonstrate grid-forming inverters at the Great Pathfinder wind plant in Iowa.
