Renewables Beat Diesel Generators for Emergency Power, says Clean Energy Technologies
With support from major foundations, the Clean Energy Group is managing a national initiative – The Resilient Power Project – to advance the deployment of resilient power technologies in states and local communities.
Clean Energy Group has released a new paper about the history of resilient power efforts. According to the paper, “Resilient Power: Evolution of a New Clean Energy Strategy to Meet Severe Weather Threats,” renewables could be the safest, most dependable power source for life support systems, elevator access and adequate heating and cooling during extreme weather.
Clean Energy Group is a proponent of cleaner energy technologies as alternatives to diesel generators in critical facilities. It first proposed fuel cell technologies in hospitals over ten years ago, and now is looking to emerging solar + energy storage technologies to reduce impacts from outages at critical facilities such as fire and police stations, emergency shelters, and in affordable housing.
