What the Infrastructure Bill Has Planned for the Electric Grid

OnDemand Webinar (45 minutes)

Learn how the Infrastructure Act proposes to enhance the resilience of the electric infrastructure grid against disruptive events.You will learn about the planned expansion of the Smart Grid Investment Matching Grant Program and how your agency or company may participate. Our speaker will also discuss the Civilian Nuclear Credit Program intended to prevent premature retirement of existing zero-carbon nuclear plants and provide funding for plants that would otherwise retire but are safe to continue operations. Review the authorized investment in the supply chain for batteries, which are essential to powering our economy with 24/7 clean, affordable, and resilient energy and transportation options. The material will also discuss producing critical minerals, sourcing materials for manufacturing, and even recycling critical materials without new extraction/mining. You will also hear about the expansion of the authority of the Department of Energy's Loan Program Office (LPO) to invest in projects that increase the domestic supply of critical minerals and expand programs that invest in manufacturing zero-carbon technologies for medium- and heavy-duty vehicles, trains, aircraft, and marine transportation. This course will also provide details on funding proposed for clean hydrogen manufacturing and advancing recycling technologies; and creating a new grant program to support advanced energy technology manufacturing projects in coal communities.
