Planning for Power: Tools and Resources for Energy Resilience

Building managers, community planners, and policymakers are turning to distributed generation and storage technologies to help critical facilities remain operational when they are needed most. In this “hands-on” workshop, experts guided participants through publicly available online tools for energy resilience planning, such as REopt Lite and DER-CAM, that can assist in site-specific optimization of onsite generation and backup power. Attendees also learned about available funding resources to help resilience projects come to fruition. Watch to learn how to apply these resources to your own projects, engage with experts in real-time, and hear about opportunities to stay connected.

Speakers: Nicholas DeForest, Lawrence Berkeley National Lab; Emma Elgqvist, National Renewable Energy Lab
