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. In particular, it will discuss and review utility experiences in managing power outages and lessons learned from past events, adapted methods for service restoration to improve grid resilience, and applied metrics for resilience assessment. Experts from utilities, regulatory, industry, and academia will discuss the progresses and recent advancements in assessing grid resilience, utility preparedness for future potential extreme climate events, and the use of utility data in developing resilience metrics.
