Learn how the TRN can be used to assess your site’s energy and water resilience posture through a risk-informed approach.

TRN Overview

Originally Presented: September 9, 2020

The TRN Overview training is intended to provide the attendee with an understanding of the overall TRN planning process—from identifying and engaging the right stakeholders and collecting data through identifying and prioritizing resilience gaps and solutions. Once completed, you will be able to utilize the web-based application to initiate an assessment of your site’s resilience posture.

  • Identify the tools you need to initiate resilience planning for your organization.
  • Enable your organization to collect data and resources, assess risk, and identify and prioritize solutions that enhance energy and water resilience.
  • Take next steps to initiate and pursue a resilience planning effort at your site.
  • Earn 0.30 continuing education units (CEUs).

Faster Resilience Assessments: An Introduction to the New Technical Resilience Navigator Lite

Originally Presented: August 15, 2023

Interested in resilience planning, but don't know where to start? This training will introduce participants to the Federal Energy Management Program's (FEMP) new tool - the Technical Resilience Navigator (TRN) Lite. Based on FEMP's existing TRN resilience planning tool, this new, streamlined tool offers users a way to kick-start their resilience planning efforts by quickly identifying risks to critical loads and potential solutions that might help reduce risk and enhance resilience. This interactive training will include an overview of resilience and risk concepts and provide a demonstration of the new TRN Lite web tool.

  • Access and use FEMP's TRN Lite;
  • Identify how to apply the TRN Lite to initiate a resilience planning process; and
  • Identify tangible next-steps for how to initiate and pursue using the TRN Lite at their own sites.
  • Earn 0.2 CEUs

TRN Risk Assessment Overview

Originally Presented: September 15, 2020

The TRN Risk Assessment Overview training will focus on how to apply a risk-informed approach to identify and assess your site’s risk drivers that help inform and prioritize resilience solutions. This training will go into detail on the quantitative risk assessment methodology used within the TRN and how to interpret results from the risk-screening.

  • Understand the benefits of the TRN’s risk-informed approach to resilience.
  • Access and use the TRN Risk Assessment module.
  • Describe risk components and apply risk-based thinking in the TRN.
  • Identify risk drivers from information within the risk output.
  • Earn 0.30 CEUs.

Developing and Prioritizing Resilience Solutions within the Technical Resilience Navigator

Originally Presented: January 2021

Understanding the resilience solutions that will be most effective at a site can been an overwhelming and challenging endeavor. This workshop will introduce participants to the process of developing and prioritizing resilience solutions using the Federal Energy Management Program’s (FEMP) Technical Resilience Navigator (TRN). Achieving enhanced energy and water resilience at a site requires federal personnel to engage a variety of stakeholders, address risks and identify, prioritize, fund, and execute energy and water solutions. This training will focus on understanding key concepts of identifying resilience solutions that address resilience gaps at your site. The training will demonstrate how the TRN models and prioritizes resilience solutions based on risk reduction and other site-determined criteria. The training will include interactive exercises and a demonstration on the updated TRN web tool, helping attendees learn how the TRN could be used to enhance the energy and water resilience at their site.

  • Learn to enhanced energy and water resilience
  • Review key concepts for identifying resilience solutions
  • Develop and prioritize resilience solutions
  • Earn 0.30 CEUs.

Decarbonization Considerations: Resilience Planning

Originally Presented: September 7, 2022

FEMP is helping agencies understand how to maximize decarbonization while harnessing climate adaptation techniques and maintaining site resilience, allowing agencies to meet current and future decarbonization goals. This training will provide attendees with an understanding of which tools and resources are available to help plan for climate resilience and adaptation.

  • Identify climate adaptation and vulnerability needs;
  • Recognize the intersection between resilience and decarbonization; and
  • Leverage available FEMP and other resources available to incorporate resilience planning into decarbonization
  • Earn 0.20 CEUs.

Climate Change Considerations: Energy and Water Resilience Planning

Originally Presented: July 11, 2023

n support of climate change resilience-related executive order goals and legislative mandates, the Federal Energy Management Program (FEMP) is helping agencies understand how to incorporate climate change considerations within their resilience planning efforts. This training will provide attendees with an overview of FEMP's available tools and resources on local climate change projections, how to incorporate climate information within the Technical Resilience Navigator (TRN), and include a discussion about the differences between climate change adaptation and mitigation (and the types of solutions that may be developed for each).

  • Access and use key Technical Resilience Navigator (TRN) tool actions;
  • Identify where to find and how to use reliable climate change resources; and
  • Identify differences between climate change mitigation and adaptation actions to help identify solutions to address these different goals, including solutions that can help to address both.
  • Earn 0.20 CEUs.
