ENERGY RESILIENCE


Keeping Utah's energy systems strong and secure

Safe and reliable energy is essential for our economy and wellbeing. With this in mind, it is imperative to make strategic investments in our critical infrastructure and other security measures to promote resilience across our energy systems.

To help keep Utah’s energy infrastructure fully functioning, regardless of the circumstances, we work with a variety of different state agencies and private sector companies with the goal of helping make sure that your energy needs are met when you need them most.

Alternative Fuel Vehicles and Emergency Plans

In partnership with the National Association of State Energy Officials, we have released a report on the Initiative of Resilience in Energy through Vehicles (iREV) describing how alternative fuel vehicles (AFVs) can be integrated with emergency planning efforts in Utah. The Utah-based report covers the alternative fuels available, operational alternative-fueled fleets, and provides key suggestions for using AFVs to enhance emergency planning efforts by strengthening fleet resilience to fuel supply disruptions. Other partners for this report include Utah Clean Cities Coalition, the Utah Division of Fleet Operations and the Utah Division of Emergency Management.
