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).
This section will help you understand the Energy Assurance Planning (EAP) process, demonstrate how the CaLEAP project supports EAP, and identify who to contact to help you move forward.
This section will provide you with an update on the tools and materials that will help you develop your EAP.
CaLEAP conducted two Energy Strategy workshops for local governments for the purpose to identify energy technologies and strategies best matched to critical facilities and assets, which enable them to become more resilient to energy disruptions. Slides and recordings from these workshops are at this link.
This section will provide you with links to resources, news and events that are energy related but not sponsored by this project.
