Distributed Resources for Disaster Response and Grid Resiliency

Federal agencies like the Department of Defense, and state and local governments are designing and building distributed energy systems, often in combination with energy storage, to support the continued operation of critical infrastructure during grid outages, natural disasters, and other emergencies. Unlike individual backup generators, these resources also provide value to consumers and to the grid during periods of normal (non-emergency) operation.  This panel will explore the costs and benefits of using distributed resources for resiliency and the operational characteristics of projects underway in various locations.
