Resilience for Building Owners & Managers

Are you a building operator looking for strategies to reduce natural disaster risks?

Green Infrastructure for Climate Resiliency
This EPA resource provides examples of ways to create resilience strategies and prepare for possible disasters.

Renewable Energy Integration & Optimization
NREL's REopt Lite web tool helps commercial building managers evaluate the economic viability of grid-connected photovoltaics (PV), wind, and battery storage at a site.

DER-CAM Microgrid Tool
Developed by Lawrence Berkeley National Lab,the Distributed Energy Resources Customer Adoption Model (DER-CAM) is a powerful and comprehensive decision support tool that primarily serves to identify optimal distributed energy resource (DER) investments in the context of either buildings or multi-energy microgrids.

Solar Resilient Tool
This tool estimates the required rating and physical size of grid-connected PV and battery energy storage to provide power for extended periods during a large-scale power outage.

The DG for Resilience Planning Guide
A guide for distributed generation planning that focuses on critical infrastructure, CHP, solar and energy storage, and microgrids. This is geared towards decision makers such as policymakers and utilities, with a variety of helpful background resources.

CHP for Resiliency in Critical Infrastructure 
Aging grid infrastructure and major storm events have increased the need to build a more resilient, modern grid that can keep communities safe and protect businesses if an outage occurs. 

CHP Screening Tool 
This tool helps you see if your site has potential for CHP. 

Combined Heat and Power (CHP) Project Profiles Database
In this database, more than 130 CHP Project Profiles compiled by DOE's CHP Technical Assistance Partnerships (TAPs) can be searched by a variety of characteristics.
