Federal agencies are reliant on critical infrastructure beyond the fence line. As the likelihood of long-term, high-impact power outages increase with climate change, it's imperative for the federal government to think about holistic and regional solutions. This session will present successful regional resilience case studies that discuss projects developed through partnerships with communities, other federal agencies, and utility providers.
