WASHINGTON, D.C., October 18, 2023 – The American Clean Power Association (ACP) released the following statement today from Vice President of Markets and Transmission Carrie Zalewski after the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) announced $3.5 billion in federal grant funding to help support grid expansion in the U.S.: 

“This funding will help support the grid expansion America desperately needs to deploy clean energy resources.  ACP and its members appreciate DOE’s diligent work in selecting high-value proposals to build new transmission, expedite interconnection, and improve the use of the existing grid with advanced technologies. Targeted federal efforts, coupled with private capital and state policies, will help increase the role of reliable and affordable clean energy in serving customers, creating high-quality jobs, and ensuring a robust domestic supply chain for renewables and storage. We look forward to working with DOE to ensure that subsequent rounds of funding can build upon today’s momentum.”
