Virtual Workshop: Enhancing Community Energy Resilience through FEMA BRIC

Supported by the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Cybersecurity, Energy Security, and Emergency Response (CESER), the National Association of State Energy Officials (NASEO) will host a virtual workshop to educate stakeholders on how the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) Building Resilient Infrastructure and Communities (BRIC) program can be leveraged to enhance energy resilience. Over the course of three days, speakers will discuss innovative pathways to mitigate hazards that threaten energy system reliability, energy services, and mission critical facilities (e.g., hospitals, shelters, public transportation). Further, the workshop will highlight how energy-related BRIC projects can support human health and safety, justice and equity, and state climate goals. The workshop, in partnership with the National Emergency Management Association (NEMA) and the Business Council for Sustainable Energy (BCSE), will bring together state energy officials, state emergency managers, local officials, energy industry representatives, and federal partners to explore how working together to plan, allocate, leverage, and manage BRIC funding can deliver greater community resilience.
