The Department of Energy (DOE) of the United States unveiled a brand-new program with a maximum funding of $50 million to assist communities across the nation in converting to clean energy systems that are dependable, affordable, equitable, and reflective of local priorities.
In order to make their clean energy goals and ambitions a reality, the Clean Energy to Communities program (C2C) will connect local governments, electric utilities, community-based groups, and others with cutting-edge modeling and testing tools developed at DOE’s world-class national laboratories.
This new program supports President Biden’s goals to decarbonize the electric grid by 2035 and achieve a net-zero emissions economy by 2050 by assisting communities in achieving their clean energy targets. This reflects President Biden’s ongoing commitment to ensuring that every community unlocks the public health and cost-saving benefits of a clean energy future.
According to U.S. Secretary of Energy Jennifer M. Granholm, with C2C, they are helping all kinds of communities, from small rural communities to sprawling urban areas, access the tools and scientific and technological expertise they need to bring their energy systems into the 21st Century.
Jennifer M. Granholm said that, this exciting program will assist communities in making educated decisions regarding their own energy requirements and ensure that Americans everywhere have access to reliable and affordable clean energy.
Communities in the renewable power, grid, mobility, and buildings sectors receive integrated technical assistance from C2C. The goal of the program is to give communities the support they need to meet their specific interests and needs as they move to a clean energy economy. This includes funding to encourage program participation for C2C’s in-depth partnerships.
