Overview
This grant will support efforts for the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) to provide technical assistance to four key countries in implementing their Paris climate treaty commitments. Many countries submitted ambitious Nationally Determined Contributions (NDC) to meet the Paris goals presuming the U.S. government would fund NREL to provide technical support. The Trump administration has declared its intent to defund any climate related activities. This is a bridge grant to keep this important work going. This grant will also fund a small stakeholder exercise to develop a pathway for minimizing the role natural gas plays in the electricity sector.

Grants to this Grantee
for NDC technical support  
This grant will support efforts for the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) to provide technical assistance to four key countries in implementing their Paris climate treaty commitments. Many countries that submitted ambitious Nationally Determined Contributions (NDC) to meet the Paris goals are likely only able to do so with NREL’s technical support, and this grant enables the continuation of that work in the face of declining U.S. government funding.

for State Grid engagement  
This grant will fund the U.S. National Renewable Energy Laboratory for its part of a collaborative project with the State Grid Corporation of China (SGCC). The two organizations signed a first ever MOU designed to draw on the Laboratory’s electricity grid modeling and design expertise, as SGCC expands efforts to develop a modern grid capable of incorporating high levels of renewable energy.
