White Paper: Decarbonized Resilience

A critical question facing utilities, regulators, communities, large energy users, and other industry stakeholders is whether the same level of local community resilience provided by diesel backup generators can be achieved through economical microgrid alternatives that are more consistent with clean energy goals.

The Brattle Group has taken on this timely topic in their new research report, “Decarbonized Resilience: Assessing Alternatives to Diesel Backup Power,” which examines detailed data comparing the feasibility, economics, and GHG emissions of several alternative microgrid systems commonly considered for resilience purposes.
