A Resilience Strategy Based on Energy Efficiency Delivers Five Core Values

Decreasing backup generation needs and up-front capital costs. An investment in energy efficiency will, first and foremost, decrease the amount of backup power required to keep a building or load operational. A 50 percent improvement in building energy efficiency will decrease the size of that building’s backup power system by half . Halving the system size will decrease the cost of traditional diesel generator sets and solar-plus-storage solutions alike. The benefits continue to trickle downstream, as lower energy loads reduce the size, cost, and complexity of electrical infrastructure and other supporting technologies, and reduce ongoing energy costs. Reducing dependence on outside fuel sources. If on-site generation sources require delivery of a fuel—which is the case for diesel generator sets, fuel cells, natural gas turbines, and other fossil-fuel technologies—then hi...
