Summary:

States are making important progress in deploying clean, resilient power technologies that can keep the power on at critical facilities during grid outages caused by extreme weather events. In a first-of-its-kind report, “What States Should Do: A Guide to Resilient Power Programs and Policy,” Clean Energy Group profiles the leading state programs and makes recommendations for what other states can do to support the deployment of clean, resilient power systems. New resilient power technologies such as solar PV combined with energy storage can provide electricity during outages as well as valuable grid services year-round. This guidebook is intended to help states establish new policies and support new markets to advance clean resilient power nationwide.

A Summary for Policymakers is also available.
