Energy Transitions Initiative Partnership Project (ETIPP)


Deadline passed. Most recent deadline: April 16, 2022. ETIPP is accepting applications through April 15 and has an informational webinar on Feb 16. Competitively selected communities receive technical assistance from the ETIPP network, working collaboratively with DOE and national laboratories and regional partner organizations on strategic energy planning and analysis to investigate solutions that address their specific challenges and goals. Spark Northwest is available to support rural communities and tribal governments with their applications. Learn more and apply here.

ETIPP works alongside remote, island, and islanded communities seeking to transform their energy systems and increase energy resilience through strategic energy planning and the implementation of solutions that address their specific challenges. ETIPP defines remote, island, or islanded communities as follows:

Remote communities are isolated from population centers and as a result, have limited access to centralized energy systems.

Island communities are isolated from the mainland by waterways.

Islanded communities are not grid-tied to large transmission-scale power systems and as a result, experience frequent issues with power quality or reliability. These communities may or may not be categorized as "remote" or "island."
