The Oregon Department of Energy developed the Oregon Guidebook for Local Energy Resilience as a resource for Oregon’s consumer-owned utilities.
The guidebook is intended to help COU staff identify incremental actions they can take today to:
- Improve business continuity planning
- Develop a framework to prioritize investments in distributed energy resources
- Better understand the role of local utilities within the context of federal, state, and local emergency management planning.
The guidebook was developed with input from several Oregon COUs, who shared their resilience actions and goals. Learn more.
We also dive in to a number of resilience topics, including distributed energy resources, State of Oregon emergency planning resources, the Federal Emergency Management Agency's role, and others. Read on.
Many state, local, and federal resources can help COUs become more resilient. See the list
