Energy efficiency can make communities more resilient by strengthen- ing energy systems and providing more-reliable and affordable energy to local governments, households, and businesses. Its potential as a resilience building tool is clear when all its benefits are viewed together. Energy efficiency helps reduce vulnerability to the diverse hazards a community may encounter, like a hurricane or even economic volatility, and increases the community’s capacity to cope with the damaging impact of those hazards.
