Climate Adaptation & Resilience Webinar
September 28, 2021 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Climate change is increasingly threatening the electric power system and causing major disruptions, through more severe and frequent weather events. These threats are exacerbated in the face of aging infrastructure. Disruptions to the electrical infrastructure propagate to other critical sectors causing a domino effect of health and community impacts. Developing resilience planning frameworks to adapt to the unavoidable impacts of severe events on the functions of the electric grid is necessary.
This webinar will focus on ways to bridge resilience needs with grid modernization and decarbonization goals. Today, there are no widely accepted metrics in the industry to measure resilience, as opposed to reliability. This is complicated by the fact that there is no “one-size-fits-all” framework and metrics for resilience, as they depend on regional and functional factors. Therefore, there is a need for robust, risk-assessment-based resilience metrics and methods that should enable benchmarking across the industry, facilitate continuous improvement, and quantify risk to guide investment prioritization decisions. The increasing severity and frequency of extreme events call for resilience planning and investment prioritization to be part of coordinated planning and span generation, transmission, and distribution.
A resilient infrastructure enables a sustainable economic future and is the building block for renewables and emerging technologies into the grid.
