Smart Grid Investment Grant Recipient Information

BACKGROUND

The Department of Energy’s Office of Electricity Delivery and Energy Reliability’s goal was to expeditiously negotiate the Smart Grid Investment Grant awards so each recipient could begin implementing their project in a timely fashion.

Each recipient can:

  • review presentations on the SGIG negotiating process; 
  • review the special clauses and reporting requirements of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act;
  • review the Department’s cost and benefit data collection and reporting template;
  • present issues and activities for ensuring cyber security protections; review the Department’s project management philosophy. 

If you have any additional questions, please contact the Department.

GUIDANCE

DOE is working in partnership with the recipients of Smart Grid Investment Grant awards to gather the required information used to develop metrics and benefits reports. The SGIG Guidebook served as a way to begin the dialogue. Over the past months DOE has continued to develop additional guidance and collections of frequently asked questions (FAQs) in support of all reporting aspects related to SGIG awards.
