Energy Equity and Resilience

November 2023

Energy equity is recognizing and enabling the disadvantaged groups and communities to have access to the clean and sustainable energy through the process of relevant tools and resources. Energy equality makes sure that these tools and resources are evenly distributed among all the communities, especially those who are historically marginalized or disadvantaged groups. 

Energy resilience is the system capability to keep providing electricity to the load during a major adverse disruption and the ability to survive during the interruption. Resilience is enabled by the well-designed electric infrastructure (grid), diverse energy resources and associated control to enable the key industrial, commercial and residential communities to withstand and recover from power outages.
