Communities LEAP Opportunity

Applications due by Dec. 17

Recently, DOE announced its Communities LEAP (Local Energy Action Program) Pilot, which aims to facilitate sustained community-wide economic and environmental benefits primarily through DOE’s clean energy deployment work.

The application deadline for the Communities LEAP Pilot is coming up. The opportunity is specifically open to low-income, energy-burdened communities also experiencing either direct environmental justice impacts, or direct economic impacts caused by a shift away from fossil fuels. Through the program, DOE will provide supportive services valued at up to $16 million for community-driven clean energy transitions.

In order to provide for transitions involving carbon capture, part of this opportunity will assist communities with evaluating whether carbon capture and storage (CCS) could be included in their long-term clean energy and clean manufacturing plans.

Are you a community leader interested in bringing carbon capture technology to your city? We can help. SSEB has decades of experience leading CCS and related energy technology programs. Reach out to our office by phone at (770) 242-7712.
