CGRS considers energy resilience a core component of building community resilience. We’re developing energy curricula for a range of learners, from undergraduate students to senior leaders in military and industry, to produce generational change.

Energy concerns span the discussion of all priority hazards, including flooding (that leads to loss of power, and necessitates strong backups, generators, and energy storage capabilities in hospitals and other sensitive areas), wind and power damage (that leads to transmission/distribution lines being downed), etc. 


Since 2018, CGRS has supported the Norwich University Applied Research Institutes (NUARI) to work with U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC) and Cold Regions Research and Engineering Laboratory (CRREL) to develop an energy-resilience research track to include issues of cybersecurity.
