Energy Master Planning for Resilient Public Communities Virtual Training
October 13-16, 2020
Until recently, energy systems for new facilities have been planned on an individual basis without consideration for how those energy choices might impact future energy generation needs across the entire community. Now, many communities across the world are formulating energy master plans that will coordinate ongoing and future energy initiatives to minimize energy use, reduce costs, increase the diversity of energy supply, and prioritize resilience to potential energy disruptions.
Join us for a virtual training workshop to hear from energy experts from around the world on how federal and military installations can successfully create and implement energy master plans. Presentations and moderated discussions will include numerous case studies describing ongoing and completed projects at military installations, university campuses, and other public communities from across the globe.
Who should attend?
This workshop is designed for decision-makers, planners, energy managers, engineers, architects, energy performance companies, and industry partners involved in community-wide energy projects.
This workshop is organized by the National Academies’ Federal Facilities Council and the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center's Construction Engineering Research Laboratory.
The Training Workshop will address the following topics:
Community energy plans
Establishing energy requirements, goals, and constraints
Data required for energy planning
Scope and boundaries of an energy master plan
Establishing the baseline, base case and alternatives
Mission critical facilities and their energy requirements
-Energy supply strategies
Power and thermal energy microgrids for mission critical facilities
Resilience of energy systems
Thermal energy systems resilience in extreme climates
Multi-criteria decision analysis
Tools for community-wide energy planning
Business and financial models for the implementation of energy master plans
Examples of best practices
