DOE Invests in Energy Infrastructure Defense Projects

Applications are being accepted for the competitive grant program.

The Department of Energy (DOE) opened applications for a $70 million grant program this month, requesting project proposals that specifically address the number of hazards facing America’s energy infrastructure. Common hazards include extreme weather events and natural disasters. However, as energy technology develops, cyber threats have increased and the need for reinforcements for delicate renewable energy parts is rising.

“As we build our clean energy future, these investments will help save money in the long run by identifying and developing innovative solutions that ensure our nation’s energy infrastructure can withstand emerging threats and the challenges of a changing world,” said Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Secretary Granholm to be discerning as she oversees the funding of energy infrastructure projects.
  • For U.S. energy officials as they seek and develop solutions to the infrastructure issues facing the American energy industry.
