The Grid and Transmission Program Conductor acts as a clearinghouse for GDO’s transmission and grid resilience financing programs, as well as other existing DOE transmission and grid programs.
The Conductor consists of an interactive tool to find the opportunities best suited to individual projects. Scroll down to the program summary below or visit the Conductor Guide for more comprehensive information about the available funding opportunities and the application process.
