Title: Energy Resilience Assessment Methodology

Abstract

With increasing utility grid outages in the United States, there is growing interest in assessing risk and developing mitigations to reduce the impact of grid outages and other power disruptions. The U.S. Department of Energy's National Renewable Energy Laboratory worked with military bases and stakeholders in their local community to develop a replicable energy resilience assessment methodology for sites, bases, and campuses to assess energy risks and develop prioritized solutions to increase site resilience. This includes steps to assess the baseline resilience of the site, identify and score hazards and vulnerabilities, analyze risks based on hazard likelihood and vulnerability probability and consequence, identify and prioritize mitigation actions based on cost, difficulty, and risk reduction, and then develop an action plan and implement solutions. The method focuses on risks to a site's primary missions, infrastructure, and population, as well as risks to infrastructure and population in the surrounding community that may impact the site.
