Within the U.S. federal government, energy resilience is increasingly important because of its impact on the ability of government agencies to fulfill their missions. For the Department of Defense and its military departments, preparing for and recovering from energy disruptions that can compromise mission readiness is imperative. Without an energy resiliency plan, security and operational risks increase, as do financial consequences.
Historically, the daily cost to the federal government from energy outages is more than $500,000. The major impediment to attaining energy resilience is a lack of funds. In a new white paper, "Beyond Appropriated Funding: An Innovative Financial Equation for Building Energy Resilience," the paper's authors explore strategies for using cost savings from energy management initiatives, combined with alternative funding contracts, to implement resiliency plans without placing new burdens on appropriated funding sources.
