Specifically, the grant will fund state-based analysis on the cost savings and pollution mitigation impacts of renewable energy; technical support for the market design and clean energy integration; and planning tools that allow state governments to plan for and procure optimal amounts of clean energy. The program will also include support for state-based Indian Civil Society Organizations to develop long-term programs that will support regulatory efforts to clean the Indian grid and promote vehicle electrification.
