What is Energy Assurance?
Energy Assurance is about becoming more resilient to interruptions to your energy supplies during an emergency.

Energy Assurance ensures that key assets within the community are able to function, protecting the public and minimizing economic loss, after all types of disaster events.

What is CaLEAP?
CaLEAP (California Local Energy Assurance Planning) is a California Energy Commission (CEC) sponsored project to assist local governments throughout the State in preparing plans to ensure that key assets are resilient to disaster events that impact energy.

The process considers all aspects of Emergency Management (prepare for, respond to, recover from, mitigate against).

Purpose of the website
This website was created to provide CaLEAP information, present Energy Assurance material and assist local governments in beginning the Energy Assurance Planning process (see Getting Started below).
