Smart Grid Investment Grant Program

Department of Energy

"The Smart Grid Investment Grant (SGIG) program is authorized by the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007, Section 1306, as amended by the Recovery Act. The purpose of the grant program is to accelerate the modernization of the nation’s electric transmission and distribution systems and promote investments in smart grid technologies, tools, and techniques that increase flexibility, functionality, interoperability, cybersecurity, situational awareness, and operational efficiency. The SGIG projects were selected through a merit-based, competitive solicitation by which successful projects were eligible to receive federal financial assistance for up to 50% of eligible costs. Additional details about the original Funding Opportunity Announcement are available in the SGIG Funding Opportunity Announcement." Per the SGIG 2012 report (, at least one funded project explicitly identifies storage as being a factor of the smart grid itself. More may include energy storage but do not list it explicitly.
