The Energy for More Resilient Cities

Facing more extreme weather and an aging grid, cities, communities, campuses, healthcare and military bases are all seeking more resilient, reliable and efficient energy infrastructure to support economic development, achieve sustainability objectives and enhance quality of life. It is also becoming increasingly important to find new pathways for deployment and collaboration on new business models to enable investment in local energy infrastructure.

District Energy, CHP, Microgrids, and Thermal Energy Storage are proven technologies that have a long history of solving some of the problems facing cities today. The district energy professionals at IDEA2019 can provide valuable insights into strategies and best practice.
