Regional Energy Resilience Planning Meeting

Regional Energy Resilience Planning Meeting

Join us on Tuesday, August 15, 2023, from 9 am to 11 am at the Gateway Community and Technical College – Boone Campus for a discussion on the region’s Energy Resilience Planning and future hazard mitigation by registering here: Northern Kentucky Regional Energy Resilience Planning & Stakeholder Meeting

In partnership with the Kentucky Office of Energy Policy (OEP), the Northern Kentucky Area Development District (NKADD) will work to identify future mitigation projects that either wholly or partially address power and general energy needs and infrastructure needs. The data collected and analyzed is intended to increase the capability of and build the capacity for local governments to propose and complete mitigation project applications.

To create a regional energy resilience hazard mitigation plan, it is essential to understand and identify potential threats to the power system. Threats can include natural, technological and human-caused and can be interconnected with systemwide impacts. For more information on Understanding Power System Threats and Impacts, visit

During the stakeholder’s meeting, the OEP representatives and NKADD staff will present an overview of the project, including identifying energy assets, lifeline interdependencies and critical facility types to survey, reviewing current mitigation actions and discussing energy security. The data collected will become useful in future mitigation planning.

We encourage all regional stakeholders or “Community Lifelines” to attend this regional energy resilience planning meeting. FEMA has defined Community Lifelines as those who enable the continuous operation of critical government and business functions and are essential to human health and safety or economic security.
