Neeharika Naik-Dhungel - Combined Heat and Power Partnership Program Manager, U.S. EPA

Over the past 10 years, the United States has faced numerous natural disasters such as hurricanes and wildfires. In order to face and overcome these events in the best possible way, each State has introduced “State Resilience Planning”, in other words a plan that takes into account various variables including energy supply. During these types of situations, independent power generation becomes critical in order to avoid blackouts, particularly in resilient facilities such as hospitals. Neeharika Naik-Dhungel cites 4 States that have adopted resilience plans: Colorado, Massachusetts, New Jersey and Maryland.
