RESILIENT SOLAR COMMUNITIES: STRATEGIES FOR MUNICIPALITIES & UTILITIES
Presented by: Gerald Braun, Founder, Integrated Resources Network
Mr. Braun will discuss experience related to increasing community resilience through purposeful community led solar deployment. He will outline a cost-effective strategy many or most communities can adopt to increase their energy resiliency. All elements of the strategy have been successfully implemented independent of one another in the past decade but typically not in an intentionally integrative way with the active involvement of local energy service providers. Mr. Braun will discuss cases of successful implementation and their tactical lessons for communities and their energy service providers. He will outline recommended collaborative steps to insure against economic and other effects of extended disruption of traditional energy service.
Topics Covered Include:
– Role of solar energy in local energy resilience
– Economics of resilient communities
– Building local energy management capacity
– Solar micro-grid powered communities .
