CESA – Distributed Energy Storage for Health and Resilience

As climate change leads to more severe weather and related power outages, we will need to find new strategies to make communities more resilient. Power outages are especially dangerous to people who rely on powered medical equipment, such as ventilators and oxygen concentrators; people who need refrigeration for temperature-regulated medication, such as insulin; mobility-impaired residents who need elevators to safely enter and leave their homes; and heat-sensitive people who cannot withstand extreme heat or cold.

This webinar will highlight efforts to develop mobile resilient energy systems that can be transported to neighborhoods where the power is out, to support medically vulnerable and electricity-dependent residents. Presenters from Together New Orleans and Footprint Project will share their experience deploying mobile solar+storage trailers to vulnerable populations following a disaster, and explore how these strategies can be used to support electricity-dependent populations moving forward. In addition, Clean Energy Group’s Marriele Mango will discuss how CEG’s Technical Assistance Fund (https://www.cleanegroup.org/ceg projects/technical-assistance-fund/) supports early-stage resilient power initiatives in disadvantaged communities.
