The Resilient Energy Assessment Team
The project will produce an analytical toolkit for local governments, community choice aggregations (CCAs) and other stakeholders, as they pursue resilient and clean energy goals. This GIS-based toolkit comprised of software and analysis metrics will be based on energy resilience analysis. It is intended to be used for making strategic decisions regarding micro-grids, energy storage, and development of other community resilience mechanisms. The resulting toolkit is intended to be portable in order to assist communities in performing resilience analyses.
Cal Poly faculty will supervise a team composed of graduate and undergraduate students. The team will coordinate with local industry experts and city personnel under the guidance of the SLOCC REA Project Manager and with input from community members. Project leader: Brian Aunger
