Community resilience hubs are locally identified and community-serving facilities that provide residents year-round access to support resources. During extreme weather, they can reduce the burden on emergency response teams by supplying power before, during, and after grid outages through onsite energy systems. Learn from Better Buildings partners who have successfully identified buildings and leveraged energy efficiency, distributed generation, and storage resources to ensure critical community facilities are online when they are needed most.
