Accessing Grid Resiliency Funding
A Programmatic Approach to Optimizing Grid Resiliency
The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA), includes, among other targeted programs, $65 billion in funding for energy related programs to support investment in electric grid resiliency. Utilities and independent developers of power transmission projects will be able to access significant funding streams by proactively evaluating and positioning existing and greenfield projects to maximize effective use of IIJA funding across nine grid investment programs.
Black & Veatch is a leader in collaborating with our clients to secure government support for critical infrastructure projects. We view the IIJA as vital to accelerating the achievement of federal, state, utility and stakeholder company clean energy and grid performance objectives.
