Resiliency is an issue at a building level and at the grid level. How do we integrate building performance and efficiency into building level resiliency and recovery efforts? At a grid level, how do efforts to diversify sources of generation and create local generation work in combination with residential building performance and efficiency? Or will efficiency be lost as a value as the market shifts to distributed energy generation? New York, New Jersey and other states are struggling with these issues. Attend this session to learn more about the efforts being undertaken in these states to build a more resilient approach to energy efficiency.
