Energy Resilience: Developing Alternative Energy Sources Toward Clean Energy and Disaster Management

A New Jersey Smart Cities Working Group Virtual Workshop

As New Jersey’s Energy Master Plan notes, adopting 100 percent clean energy by 2050 requires aggressive deployment of existing technologies and embracing new technologies as they become cost-competitive. In addition to being clean, affordable and reliable, new energy systems and technologies must be resilient — able to survive acute events such as storms and heat waves and capable of withstanding long-term shifts such as climate change and technology evolution. How the state and the wider world integrate resilience into future systems determines the return on innovation in the long run, and determines public faith in governments and markets to provide our most basic needs reliably.

Stevens Institute of Technology, as a member of the New Jersey Smart Cities Working Group, is hosting the Energy Resilience Workshop to explore ongoing research aimed at ensuring that New Jersey’s energy systems are sustainable and resilient. Topics run the gamut from system reliability and disaster planning/response to innovations and technologies aimed at reducing carbon footprints, including offshore wind, energy harvesting and micro-grid technologies.
