The Energy Department will present a live webcast titled Achieving Energy Security in Federal Facilities on Thursday, May 3, 2012. The webcast will take place from 1:30 to 3:00 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time. The session will benefit federal facility, energy, and emergency personnel interested in practices and technologies that protect energy security.
Experts Tony Mayfield of SRA International, Inc. and Ab Ream of DOE's Federal Energy Management Program (FEMP) will present information on how to protect agency facilities and critical missions from energy disruptions through risk and vulnerability assessments, careful planning, and deployment of advanced technologies.
Specifically, the training will demonstrate how to protect mission-critical functions by:
- Integrating energy security measures into all aspects of operations
- Reducing load and demand to safeguard the most important site-specific operations
- Incorporating advanced technologies that protect access to energy sources
- Planning emergency responses to short- and long-term energy disruptions
Participants are encouraged to email or call in their questions before and during the program to receive tailored advice from the experts during the live "Q&A" segment. Questions submitted before the program can be sent to FTS@energyworkshops.org. The 90-minute webcast is free of charge, but advanced registration is required to obtain an Internet URL for the presentation.
