Part 1 Mitigating Natural Hazard Risks in the Energy Sector: Innovative Projects that Help Build Resilient Communities
The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Hazard Mitigation Assistance Division, in partnership with the Department of Energy’s (DOE) Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, Weatherization and Intergovernmental Programs, hosted a webinar on building resiliency in the energy sector through innovative energy mitigation projects that incorporate energy efficiency, renewable energy and storage, and microgrids. Participants learned about ongoing federal and state funded energy projects, how to leverage federal grant funding available through FEMA’s Fiscal Year 2019 Pre-Disaster Mitigation (PDM) grant program, and about DOE’s State Energy Program.
This two-part webinar series is primarily intended for federal, state, tribal and local community officials who are interested in learning about innovative, energy-specific hazard mitigation projects; how to leverage federal grant funding available through FEMA’s Pre-Disaster Mitigation (PDM) grant program; and resources that are available through the DOE’s State Energy Program.
