DOE Federal Energy Management Program - FEMP

This training will inform attendees about how to incorporate resilience into federal facilities. The training will provide an overview of resilience and review the key attributes of resilience. Attendees can expect to learn more about resilience planning. Additionally, attendees will learn about high-impact, low-frequency events and their place in resilience planning, and how climate change will impact resilience.
