New report: What is #resilience worth to you? A new metric could answer that question.

Puerto Rico experienced another island-wide blackout last week. Distributed energy resources such as combined heat and power (CHP) could help communities avoid or minimize some impacts of large-scale natural disasters including blackouts. Our new white paper, Valuing Resilient Distributed Energy Resources: Combined Heat and Power and the Modern Grid , proposes a new metric to help decision makers better assess the costs of disruptive events and the value of critical resources including CHP. What is energy resilience and what does it cost? Energy resilience can be a critical indicator of an energy system’s performance. This report defines energy resilience as the ability of an energy system to withstand “high-consequence, low-probability” events and to regain normal operational activity after such events occur. Extended power outages resulting from poor resilience can lead ...
