This book is written as a practical guide to those interested in the pursuit of energy resilience at a local scale. Examples are drawn from four key community types: military bases, healthcare campuses, educational campuses and municipal governments. The book then describes a framework for developing an energy resilience plan that applies to each. While the focus is clearly on the U.S., understanding the energy resilience threat and conducting long-range energy resilience planning will benefit communities all over the globe. Part I describes the specific energy security threats that are facing local institutions and communities, the specific impact of an energy shock, and the advantages offered by pursuit of energy resilience. Part II provides concrete guidance and allows managers to assess where their institution lies on the energy resilience spectrum and they would like to be. Part III describes the three main areas of energy efficiency, on-site generation, and emergency planning.
