Resilient Power Project

Resilient Power Project

To reduce impacts and dangers of power outages in communities now and in the future, the Resilient Power Project works to provide technology and policy solutions to address three challenges: Community Resiliency, Climate Adaptation, and Climate Mitigation.

Upcoming Webinars

The Resilient Power Project, a joint initiative of Clean Energy Group and Meridian Institute, is focused on accelerating market development of resilient, clean energy solutions for affordable housing and critical community facilities in low-income and disadvantaged communities. The Project is targeted to the deployment of solar PV combined with energy storage (solar+storage) – to power essential services during extended power outages and to reduce the economic burden of energy costs in vulnerable communities. The goal is to further clean energy equity by ensuring that all communities have access to the economic, health, and resiliency benefits that solar and energy storage technologies can provide.

Clean Energy Group’s role in this process is to inform, coordinate, and assist in the planning and implementation of resilient power projects in underserved communities, in both rural and urban areas, across the country. In addition to providing program guidance to policy makers and technical assistance to developers and community organizations, we also prepare reports and analysis on resilient power programs and projects, clean energy finance tools, and best practices.

In order to assist in the process of building stronger, more secure communities through resilient power, Clean Energy Group has compiled many of these resources into Resilient Power Toolkits. The community services and affordable housing toolkits are designed to make information on resilient power easily accessible. Each toolkit contains links to reports, webinars, presentations, and other educational resources to give organizations the information needed to understand how resilient power works and how communities can deploy solar+storage to increase resiliency, reduce energy costs, and improve public health.

Clean Energy Group welcomes you to the Resilient Power Project and encourages you to explore the information provided in tabs above for our Toolkits, Publications, Webinars, Blog, Newsletters, FAQs, Project Map, and Featured Installations.

Clean Energy Equity in 2017: How Foundations Can Advance Solar and Storage Technologies in Low-Income Communities

At the end of 2016, the clean energy trade press was filled with upbeat stories about various renewable energy technology breakthroughs, cost reductions, and tipping points. But, if there’s one energy problem we did not solve last year, it is equity.

Time-of-Use Means It’s Time for Storage

Hawaii's time-of-use pilot program could have profound implications for the value of solar systems on the islands, and energy storage might be needed to keep those systems economic. In that story is a lesson for the country and the future of solar.
