Power Grid Resilience Under Climate Change

The frequency and magnitude of extreme weather events (e.g., hurricanes, wildfires, and floods) has been significantly increasing. These events have severely impacted power systems ranging from long outage times to economic losses to major equipment (e.g., substations, transmission lines, and power plants) destructions. This calls for assessing the impact of extreme weather events on Bulk Electric System, utilities and distribution systems to improve grid resilience against such events. This panel addresses the impacts of climate change on power grid resilience.
