Recent events, notably Hurricane Sandy, which devastated parts of the US East Coast in October 2012, has brought attention to the reliability and resiliency of the electric systems in the US Capital region and elsewhere. This panel will describe lessons learned about the reliability and resiliency of the electric systems, what has been done in the preceding year in the US Capital region to harden the grid to make it smarter and more robust against natural disasters, and what remains to be done.
