District Energy Group Outlines Emergency Preparedness Steps

The International District Energy Association (IDEA), a group founded in 1909 to help the district energy sector share information, held a COVID-19 Working Group Conference Call on March 23 to discuss emergency preparedness measures underway at district energy systems around the world. IDEA is providing this call as a free webinar, available here.
IDEA has also created an emergency preparedness website, available here, detailing the group’s resources, including a letter sent to the federal government asking that district energy systems be added to the essential critical infrastructure workforce list.
