The U.S. government has eliminated funding for the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) to support developing countries with technical support for the purpose of achieving the climate mitigation goals set in the Paris Climate treaty. These Nationally Determined Commitments (NDC) were set with the implicit understanding the U.S. government would provide technical support to key countries. This is a one-time bridge grant to keep that technical support on track until the Lab either receives funding from the U.S. government or they can raise the funds from other governments or corporations.

Grants to this Grantee
for the assessment of near-zero emissions power sector pathways in China
Berkeley Lab and UC Berkeley will use their power sector modeling and economic analysis to assess the costs and benefits of moving the Chinese power system to zero carbon. Partners will include Tsinghua University and Chinese Academy of Sciences in building the narrative on jobs and finance. (Substrategy: Transport Electrification)
for the International Energy Analysis Department Program on Clean Energy in India and China
This grant will support the India and China programs of the International Energy Analysis Department at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. In India, the Lab will advance transport electrification and clean-power deployment through the provision of scientific analysis, executive training, and technical assistance. In China, the Lab will assess decarbonization pathways in power and end-use sectors.
for the India program for electrification and fuel efficiency in transport
This grant will support the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory’s International Energy Studies Department (IES) in India. The IES assists countries and partners in identifying and utilizing clean energy resources, energy efficiency opportunities, as well as advance clean transportation. With this support, the IES will provide strategic, analytical, and technical assistance to various institutions in India to accelerate the deployment of more efficient and plug-in electric vehicles.
