Public transportation is vital for local economies, but transportation accounts for 29% of Greenhouse Gas emissions in the US. Decarbonizing public transportation without disrupting operations and services to keep local economies moving is critical to this transition. Listen to this informative webinar to learn more about the challenges and opportunities for public transit agencies electrifying their bus fleet. Hear about:
• Transition experiences from transit agencies on both coasts
• Innovative financing mechanisms and opportunities (Energy as a Service, Public-Private Partnerships, Green Banks/Bonds, FTA Funding and Grants etc.)
• Building resilience to remain operationally flexible and responsive
• Grid flexibility, DERs and becoming a prosumer

Deploying microgrids is a key resilience objective for the DoD. Existing EUL and PPA procurement authorities for microgrids can be combined into an Energy as a Service procurement model. The EaaS model draws from the EUL’s authority to execute land leases for the siting of energy infrastructure (microgrids) on DoD installations. It also draws from the PPA’s authority that enables a energy developer to contract with a DoD agency by selling energy in exchange for its services in financing, designing, building, owning, operating, and maintaining energy infrastructure.
