State energy assurance planning supports a robust, secure, and reliable energy infrastructure that is also resilient—able to restore services rapidly in the event of a disaster. The continued growth of the alternative fuel vehicle (AFV) market and increasing coordination between state energy offices and local Clean Cities stakeholders offer an opportunity to enhance, augment, and update the planning process, with the goal of promoting resiliency via increased deployment of AFVs in times of emergency.
NASEO hosted a webinar on July 17, 2014 to explore the benefits and opportunities of integrating AFVs in energy assurance planning. Panelists Linda Bluestein, National Clean Cities Director for the U.S. Department of Energy, and Jeff Pillon, Energy Security Director for NASEO, helped participants examine strategies to promote information sharing and stakeholder coordination among state energy offices and Clean Cities coordinators.
