The World Energy Council has partnered with energy and finance leaders to identify the key challenges and recommendations to finance resilient energy infrastructure. The project is supported by insights from Swiss Re Corporate Solutions, Marsh & McLennan Companies, Inc., and the European Bank of Reconstruction and Development. Combined with the Council’s annual energy trilemma analysis on political and regulatory risks, the Road to Resilience series provides decision makers with an encompassing understanding of the risks involved in financing resilient energy infrastructures. The Road to Resilience series features three reports available on www.worldenergy.org/publications: • Managing and financing extreme weather risks • Managing the risks of the energy-water-food nexus • Managing cybe...
Climate change isn't going away. As the world shifts away from carbon energy sources, what alternatives can and should Canada persue? On October 29, 2014, at 7PM ET CIGI Chair of Global Systems Thomas Homer-Dixon will take to the CIGI Auditorium stage to discuss Canada's potential as a Resilient Energy Superpower.

Resilient Energy installed 2 wind turbines at Cherry Rock Farm in Wickwar, Gloucestershire. The turbines will generate power for 880 homes. Find out more at https://www.facebook.com/ResilientEnergy/ Video and music by Squiff Creative Media Thanks Nick for drone footage :-)
Powerhive provides access to productive, affordable and reliable mini-grid electricity for rural homes and businesses around Africa and beyond. This video shows Powerhive customers and solar generation sites in Kisii county, Kenya, where the company got its start. Powerhive’s ability to serve commercial customers in remote areas is a key component of our value proposition, and what sets us apart from the national electricity grid as well as from small solar home systems and solar kits. Not only are we connecting communities to real electricity for the first time, we are empowering people to contribute to economic development by deploying scalable and resilient energy infrastructure that is better for the planet.
In this video Dr. Amos Avidan, Bechtel's Senior Vice President and Manager of Corporate Engineering and Technology, shares how using big data can help to design more resilient energy systems. To learn more visit: http://bit.ly/Build100_

Stress has become an epidemic and it influences the health, happiness, and well-being of millions of people every day. This is especially true for people living in the western world. However, indigenous cultures were seemingly much better at coping with the adversities they were exposed to and stress levels were low. Why is it that we, with our modern lifestyle, are becoming more and more unable to cope with stress? And how can we change this negative spiral and increase stress tolerance? This week, I am talking to Phillip Ghezelbash, an expert in stoicism and the author of ”The Stoic Body”. We will uncover some of the reasons why most people have difficulty coping with stress and how stoicism can help you increase stress tolerance. In this podcast, you’ll learn. The reason why low str...

Michigan Tech students help assemble a portable military microgrid at the Keweenaw Research Center in this time lapse video. Microgrids like this one can help military bases and communities prevent total electrical grid failure by providing solar power quickly. To learn more about what Michigan Tech is doing to build resiliency into the electrical grid, read “The Elasticity of Electricity” article featured in the 2018 Research magazine.
Imagine an energy future in which all of us can contribute to and take part in the energy production, distribution, and protection of our resources. Energy and resilience expert Paul Roege is taking us on a mental journey through the present and the future of energy.
The video showcases the ICT framework of the RESILIENT project and its three main software components.
The challenge of solar photovoltaic technology is that it doesn’t produce energy when the sun isn’t shining—but that doesn’t mean we can’t harness the sun’s energy and use it at night. A SunShot Initiative project with Austin Energy is working to develop energy storage solutions to enable higher amounts of solar to be added to the grid, while also developing a storage model that can be used by other utilities, allowing more people to power their lives with solar energy around the clock.

http://www.diamondlightnetworks.com/ http://www.akashicintuitive.com/ http://www.mtshastacityoflight.com By Shivrael Luminance River How can we, as energy sensitive beings, be resilient in this world? On one hand, our sensitivity is a gift. We can sense intuitively what is best for us and what is best for the whole. We get amazing insights because we are energy sensitive. We have healing talents. We have intuitive psychic gifts. It helps us make decisions in our everyday life. In a world that seems run by science and logic, every person on the planet uses intuition added to their logic as a way of understanding what they experience. Yet the world doesn't recognize intuition as a valid path of knowing, but it is. The sensitivity that we have is a gift as we are privy to a whole spectrum ...
Table of contents: https://youtu.be/sMbTUGMiDZs?t=7s More information at: http://www.eesi.org/briefings/view/120616idea Cities, communities and campuses throughout the nation are actively seeking more resilient, sustainable energy infrastructure to support economic growth and achieve environmental objectives. District energy microgrids incorporate combined heat and power (CHP) to deliver greater energy efficiency and optimize the use of local resources while strengthening the local and regional power grids. The International District Energy Association (IDEA), the Microgrid Resources Coalition (MRC), and the Environmental and Energy Study Institute (EESI) held a briefing providing policy guidance and showcasing proven technologies and exemplary cases that illuminate the potential for mor...
