The Grid and Transmission Programs Conductor acts as a clearinghouse for GDO’s transmission and grid resilience financing programs made available through President Biden’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Act and Inflation Reduction Act, as well as other existing DOE transmission and grid programs.
The Conductor's goal is to provide resources and open lines of communication to maximize the effectiveness of these programs and work with state and local governments, tribes and territories, utility and industry partners, and other stakeholders to catalyze the development of a resilient, modern grid and transmission infrastructure for a reliable, affordable, and clean energy future.
