Plenary Session: A Resilient Maryland Educates and Leaves Nobody Behind
Date & Time
Wednesday, April 24, 2024, 8:45 AM - 10:00 AM
Brandon Bowser

Maryland's efforts to improve the State's resiliency to the threats of climate change, natural disasters, severe weather, malicious cyber activity, and aging infrastructure have accelerated over the past nearly half-decade. The Maryland Energy Administration and the Resilient Maryland program have allocated historic funding, including a budgeted $6 million for fiscal year 2024, to clean energy, microgrid and other resiliency projects. This also comes at a time when the federal government has made historic investments into improving infrastructure and the sustainability of our economy. With so many resources available, it can be both exhilarating and overwhelming for community leaders, industry stakeholders, government agencies, and other change agents to mobilize on large-scale resilience planning. 

The immediacy of the climate crisis makes it imperative that the plans enacted, resources provided, stakeholders engaged, and the capital deployed in these efforts are managed and utilized equitably. Join Bowser in this discussion of the work we've done at the Maryland Energy Administration (MEA) to incentivize the development and installation of microgrids, resiliency hubs, and other clean and resilient energy technologies, and how we've been able to leverage community and stakeholder education to de-risk projects and leave no Marylander behind in the clean energy transition.
