This training session will present examples of successful DoD projects that provide a "triple-win" for efficiency, resilience, and sustainability goals. Energy managers will learn about the interrelationship between energy efficiency, sustainability, and resiliency with examples of "how to" implement the findings of plans and readiness exercises. Federal agencies are making great strides at identifying energy resiliency needs with installation/campus energy plans and implementation of technologies such as microgrids and renewable energy. A panel of experts will describe their experiences with how, after being armed with the results of resilience planning and readiness exercises, can use these plans to operationalize your resilience strategy. Panelists will present processes, challenges, and best practices learned from planning and implementing projects to address efficiency, resilience, and sustainability.

Upon completion of this session attendees will:
- Understand DoD resiliency requirements for critical mission facilities and installations;
- Identify how to transition from Installation energy plans and readiness exercises to implementation of resiliency projects;
- Identify processes, challenges, and best practices from actual projects implemented to address resilience and efficiency; and
- Understand the value of microgrids and their implementation in resilience projects.
