Funding Tools for Resilient Energy

Depending upon which options municipalities, utilities, or individuals implement or take in an effort to utilize equitable resilient energy and electric power sector measures, various financing or funding options may be made available. These sources can come from a variety of places, including the federal government, nonprofits, private businesses, local governments, and more. It is important that all those involved in developing a community’s energy resilience take advantage of all the funding opportunities that may be available.

Lessons Learned

  • Public-private partnerships are a likely source of funding and should be sought out when looking to fund energy resilience.
  • Energy systems often create economic benefits for partners involved, which often incentivizes investments in these types of projects and can be used as a bartering tool.
