Clean Energy to Communities Program: In-Depth Partnerships

Through the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Clean Energy to Communities (C2C) program, NREL offers in-depth technical partnerships that support communities in developing secure, reliable, resilient, equitable, and affordable clean energy systems.

These partnership teams work alongside national laboratory staff to apply robust modeling and analysis tools and conduct hardware-in-the-loop demonstration of solutions adapted to the community’s unique conditions and contexts. This multiyear partnership allows local decision makers to evaluate and test potential scenarios and strategies in their energy transition before full technology deployment, thereby lowering risks to implementation.
