With the alarming increase in threats ranging from cyber-attacks to extreme weather events, more advanced thinking is needed to determine how best to power our installations and plan for disruptions in utility services. No longer will a few diesel generators sprinkled around a post to back-up critical structures be enough to mitigate risk in today's unstable economic and environmental climates.
Now more than ever, a comprehensive energy plan is essential to ensure continuity of mission readiness. Such an approach must evaluate a variety of sometimes contradictory requirements to arrive at the most resilient total energy solutions. Done correctly, designing for such resiliency also improves the overall efficiency of an installation’s generation systems and reduces greenhouse gas emissions.
On June 27th Rob McAtee, PE, Director of Energy and Sustainability Services at Mason & Hanger will lead an engaging presentation exploring projects and processes that mitigate security challenges including physical attack, flooding, and hacking of control systems. McAtee will provide an in-depth exploration of case studies emphasizing completed projects and the benefits of on-site generation and microgrids which have led to improved energy security, reduced energy costs and minimized greenhouse gas emissions.
