Using three distinct types of energy resilience assessments, MIT Lincoln Laboratory is helping military installations get a comprehensive look at their energy resilience programs.

With the sponsorship and direction of the Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Energy and the military services, MIT Lincoln Laboratory has led efforts to assess and improve the energy resilience posture at over 30 installations, with support ranging from technical reviews to base-wide utility outage exercises. The results have highlighted that while fixed installations often take energy for granted, many operations and mission capabilities may be severely degraded during a power outage.
