Recognizing that the DoD relies on commercial power to perform its important missions within the U.S., and that the homeland U.S. is no longer a safe sanctuary; EEI members are uniquely qualified to collaborate with the military by enhancing energy resiliency and reliability with “inside the fence” solutions.
Electric companies have a long, successful history of working together with the federal government and military on energy resiliency solutions. As new threats and vulnerabilities to infrastructure emerge, it is critical for the DoD and federal government to strengthen their relationships with their electric companies to resolve challenges inside and outside of their control. Key benefits of closely collaborating with electric companies:
- Long-standing, trusted relationships with our military customers.
- Expertise in identifying and address energy reliability and resiliency challenges. Energy resiliency is in our DNA.
- Line-of-sight of surrounding supply infrastructure: thorough knowledge of electric systems that serve installations.
- Financial tools and authorizations that enables electric companies to fund comprehensive, holistic energy resiliency solutions.
