How a standardized Value of Resilience will proliferate Community Microgrids

Energy resilience is a pressing need for our communities.

Why we need a standardized Value of Resilience (VOR)

Evaluating resilience in terms of critical load

  • Tier 1 = Critical load, usually 10% of total load: Life-sustaining or crucial to keep operational during a grid outage
  • Tier 2 = Priority load, usually 15%: Important but not absolutely crucial to keep operational during an outage
  • Tier 3 = Discretionary load, usually 75%: Remainder of the total load
