RCAP Implementation Workshop: Resilient Energy Systems
September 27, 2018 @ 9:00 am - September 28, 2018 @ 12:00 pm
The Southeast Florida Regional Climate Change Compact, in partnership with the U.S. Department of Energy Southeast Combined Heat and Power Technical Assistance Partnership, hosted the Regional Climate Action Plan Implementation Workshop: Resilient Energy Systems on September 27-28 in Miami. This 1.5-day workshop focused on the development of resilient energy systems for critical infrastructure facilities through the expanded use of distributed energy resources to improve Southeast Florida’s disaster preparedness and ensure long-term regional resilience.
The workshop brought together chief resilience officers, local government sustainability staff, staff from planning and housing agencies, and emergency management professionals. The workshop shared tools to develop and evaluate plans for resilient energy systems at critical infrastructure facilities, information about the capabilities and application of distributed energy resources, and best practices from state and local government program implementation of resilient energy systems.
This workshop continues the Compact’s series of workshops designed to advance the implementation of the Regional Climate Action Plan and specifically focuses on recommendations from the Energy and Fuel and Risk Reduction and Emergency Management chapters.
