On November 14, 2023, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) announced up to $3.9 billion available through the Grid Resilience and Innovation Partnerships (GRIP) Program, which enhances grid flexibility and resilience against growing threats of extreme weather and climate change. This funding opportunity, the second under the GRIP program, focuses on projects that will improve electric transmission by increasing funding and advancing interconnection processes for faster build out of energy projects, create comprehensive solutions that link grid communications systems and operations to increase resilience and reduce power outages and threats, and deploy advanced technologies such as distributed energy resources and battery systems to provide essential grid services to ensure American communities across the country have access to affordable, reliable, clean electricity.

A public webinar was held at 3:00 p.m. ET on November 20, 2023, to provide additional information.
