The concept of Indian tribes in the United States

Department of Energy Awards Funding for Tribal Energy Projects

United States Energy Secretary Steven Chu has announced that 31 tribal energy projects will receive $6.3 million over two years as part of the Department of Energy (DOE) policy of supporting tribal energy development. These projects, which will be selected competitively, enable Native American tribes to promote clean energy within their communities by developing strategic energy plans, educating tribal members, and improving the energy efficiency of their buildings.
