Building the Foundation for Energy Resilient Communities: Clean Energy Group’s Resilient Power Funding Programs’ 2022 Impact
November 14, 2023 @ 1:00 PM - 2:30 PM ET
Clean Energy Group operates two resilient power small grant programs that have supported over 112 community-based organizations, affordable housing providers, municipalities, and first responders across 30 states plus DC and Puerto Rico since 2014. The Technical Assistance Fund (TAF) helps environmental justice communities gain access to early-stage project development funding, expert guidance and advisory support, and the technical resources needed to develop community- led solar and energy storage projects that can serve as local resilience hubs during times of crisis. The Resilient Power Leadership Initiative (RPLI) provides community-based organizations with funding support to build internal capacity around resilient power solutions.
CEG released its first ever annual impact report featuring these two funding programs, “Building the Foundation for Energy Resilient Communities,” which reflects on the programs’ projects, partnerships, and lessons learned. In this webinar, CEG staff were joined by two TAF engineering partners and a 2022 RPLI awardee. The webinar highlighted key trends and accomplishments noted in the report.
