Resilience, as it pertains to energy, is defined as the ability to have a contingent electrical supply and maintain reliable power in the event of a power failure.
While there isn’t a lot of debate on the need for energy resilience, there are a lot of questions around what to implement and how to pay for it. Join CPower’s NY Sr. Manager of Engineering, Arusyak Ghukasyan, Sr. Account Executive Michael Mindell and CRBE’s Director of Energy and Sustainability, Emily Wilson, as they help provide insight into resilience:
When it comes to energy, the last several years have been the most dynamic, exciting, and perhaps confusing of the preceding 100 years. The proliferation of renewables, behind-the-meter storage, energy efficiency, microgrids, and ambitious energy policies (just to name a few) have made planning your organization’s energy strategy for 2020 far more complex than years past. This short but informative 30-minute webinar hosted by CPower’s market experts will cover some of the most important developments and changes in the US’s open energy markets to help you successfully plan and manage your organization’s energy decision strategy.
In August 2019, ERCOT, the Texas-area independent system operator (ISO), initiated an unprecedented two demand response events–the first in Texas since 2015.
These demand response events helped prevent brownouts and blackouts on the grid and protected the community as well as the state’s economy from suffering losses due to power outages.
Organizations that participated in these demand response events earned significant revenue. While the events this summer were the first in many years in the Lone Star State, they likely won’t be the last.
