At its core, our work in transportation and the built environment is to create resilience.
Resiliency is a critical component focused on preparing our communities to withstand and recover from high-impact energy disruptions, ranging from natural disasters and global climate change to cyberattacks, that could severely limit economic and societal security.
We’re working to develop and implement policies and programs that ensure the resiliency of our energy systems and the vitality of our communities through distributed energy resources, microgrids and other technologies that adequately provide not only security, but also cost-effectiveness and equitable access.
By investing now in distributed energy resources and microgrid development, we can help avoid future energy power outages and maintain critical operations when the grid is down. Even individual homes can benefit from this concept, using rooftop solar and battery storage as backup power.
