The Public Technology Institute (PTI) in coordination with the U.S. Department of Energy Office of Electricity Delivery & Energy Reliability (DOE/OE) has released a free guide to help local officials plan for and respond to incidents and emergencies that result in energy outages. Entitled “Local Government Energy Assurance Guidelines” the publication provides an overview of how to engage in energy assurance planning (EAP) from a pre-disaster standpoint. PTI Executive Director, Alan Shark states:
“Very few local governments have a response and recovery plan that is specific to energy emergencies. Once created, energy assurance plans help local governments provide life-saving services during an energy emergency.”
