Abstract:

This final report describes the development and evaluation of models of the Energy Emergency District concept, and also explores potential applications of the concept for enhancing emergency management procedures. Part I provides summary descriptions of the problems which originally gave rise to the EED concept. A comprehensive description of the public and private organizations who share responsibility for emergency energy resource preparedness, from the national to the local level, is given. Part II describes the mission, goals, scope and methods of the California Energy and Emergency Preparedness Project. Part III stems from the outcomes and the lessons learned at the conference, from the discussion in Part I of existing organizations, and from interviews with energy providers and emergency managers to suggest variations on the EED concept, and to outline programmatic approaches to energy resource emergency preparedness. Part IV suggests some research areas and possible strategies for more thoroughly developing the EED concept, as well as for implementing it.
