Indiana OED is committed to offering grant and funding programs for the benefit of Hoosier citizens, communities, and businesses in support Indiana’s energy policies and priorities. Our programs span a suite of opportunities across all sectors and energy technologies. You can find a variety of funding options from planning stages, such as developing energy plans and conducting energy audits, to infrastructure deployment, such as energy efficiency improvements, installation of alternative and advanced energy technologies, and installation of grid resilience measures.
OED's financial assistance aims to provide an efficient and effective process for all applicants and recipients. To find out more about our initiatives, please click on one of the program links in the table below.
On July 27, 2023, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) released additional information regarding the state application process for the energy rebate programs provided by the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA). The Indiana Office of Energy Development is closely monitoring the progress and the development of federal guidance. DOE has also established a website for information on these rebate programs. See OED’s webpage for more information.
Community Energy Security Planning Grant (State Energy Program)
County governments, Towns, Cities, Regional Planning Organizations, or Nonprofits working on behalf of communities
The funding opportunity allows for efforts to develop, enhance, and implement local energy security planning to ensure more reliable and resilient energy infrastructure. An energy security plan will identify, assess, and mitigate risks to energy infrastructure and to plan for, respond to, and recover from events that disrupt energy supply.
Grid Resilience Program (IIJA 40101(d) Preventing Outages and Enhancing the Resilience of the Electric Grid)
Improve resilience of the electric grid against disruptive events through physical upgrades, incorporating technology, and analyses. Workforce development necessary to achieve improvements is also supported.
