Indicators for Local Energy Resilience

White Paper


David Ribeiro and Tyler Bailey 


This paper deals with the interconnection of community resilience and various aspects of energy supply and consumption—what we call local energy resilience. We discuss nine dimensions of local energy resilience (for example, transportation connectivity and thermal performance of buildings) and provide indicators for each of them. Decision makers can use these concepts to set goals, inform plans, and develop policies to increase the energy resilience of their communities.
