About Us

AESC’s Energy Resiliency Planning Services have been featured in this quarter’s AESP Energy Intel Magazine. Dara Salour authored “Planning Resiliency for Critical Facilities” which provides an overview of the process AESC uses to assist building portfolio owners in determining the right facilities to prioritize in the effort to provide services in the event of a power outage due to wildfire or grid stresses.

Planning Resiliency for Critical Facilities

According to the U.S. Department of Energy, resilience is defined as “The ability of a power system and its components to withstand and adapt to disruptions and rapidly recover from them.” With climate change directly impacting power supply, both in risk to infrastructure from fire and from demand that exceeds capacity at peak hours, the need for energy resilience is ever more present, and nowhere is that felt more than in our critical facilities. In California, increasing temperatures and dry conditions are causing more frequent and severe wildfires. Pacific Gas & Electric (PG&E) and other California utilities routinely perform public service power shutoffs (PSPS) to help avoid triggering wildfires, especially during wind events.  California businesses and governmental agencies need to keep their most critical facilities up and running during PSPS events to prevent loss of revenue and to provide needed services and safety for their constituents.
