On Sept. 26, during the White House Tribal Nations Conference, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Indian Energy announced a Notice of Intent to issue a funding opportunity announcement (FOA) entitled “Deployment of Clean Energy and Energy Efficiency Projects on Indian Lands” later this year.

Through the planned FOA, the Office of Indian Energy intends to solicit applications from Indian tribes (including Alaska Native Regional Corporations and Village Corporations) and Tribal Energy Resource Development Organizations to:

  1. Install clean energy and energy efficiency retrofit projects for tribal buildings; and
  2. Deploy clean energy systems on a community scale. 

The Office of Indian Energy is authorized to fund and implement a variety of programmatic activities that assist American Indian tribes and Alaska Native villages with energy development, capacity building, energy cost reduction, and electrification of Indian lands and homes.
