Extreme events such as Hurricane Sandy have caused catastrophic damages in the East Coast. The issue has received great attention from industries and governments. Existing concepts and tools are not designed to handle extreme events such as severe earthquakes and hurricanes. The inter-dependency between the power grid and other infrastructures, e.g., communications, needs to be considered. To achieve a resilient grid against such catastrophes, it will require new concepts, technologies, and procedures to harden power grid components, enhance automation, increase redundancy, and de-centralize generations with microgrids, renewables, and storage. The expert panelists will cover important aspects for resilient distribution grids.
