Climate trends are deviating substantially from prior norms, and these deviations are impacting the reliability of existing energy systems and the siting of new systems. Current methodologies for evaluating risks to fielded infrastructure and for identifying stable locations for the future are no longer valid. What's needed is a decision support to help planners and defenders prioritize and better protect existing critical grid and other critical infrastructure elements, including:
- Generation (all forms)
- Control centers
- Gas pipelines
- Water and waste water treatment plants
- Communications assets
This discussion will provide inputs into a formative methodology for protecting existing -- and siting new -- infrastructure assets that seeks to fully account for climate physical risk knowns and unknowns.
Upon completion, participants will be able to:
- Better understand current impacts to energy infrastructures
- Learn what the best climate models are telling us to expect in the near-mid term future
- Gain insight into potential mitigation and protection strategies to ensure we keep the power flowing and the lights on
