Funding Utilities Upgrades: A Look At DOE Programs For Your Enterprise
As many of us explore new, data-empowered changes to the way we operate, the US Department of Energy (DOE) is empowering domestic utilities to adopt smart new tools and techniques with its Grid Resilience and Innovation Partnerships Program (GRIP).
Let’s explore some of the options:

- Second is the $3 billion in Smart Grid Grants for increasing the flexibility, efficiency and reliability of electric power systems to boost the integration of renewables and electric vehicles.
