Power Grid Resilience

The recent weather events that swept across the southern United States have led to the closure of major cities and the mass failure of power grids, sending millions of residents into a multiday blackout.

Associate I Alexandra Burelbach and Economic Analyst Haozheyi Guan will be hosting an upcoming REMI webinar, “Power Grid Resilience,” on Wednesday, March 10th from 2:00 to 3:00 p.m. (ET) that considers the costs and benefits of investing in resilient infrastructure in order to avoid drastic power failures in the future.

Taking measures to build and support resilient power grids can be crucial to withstanding similar complications caused by inclement weather. During this webinar presentation, Ms. Burelbach and Ms. Guan will demonstrate the effect of power grid resilience on state and regional economies.

Using the REMI E3+ model, they will estimate the economic impact of severe weather with a standard power grid before comparing those results to a power grid built to be resilient in the face of significant disruptions.

Following the webinar, there will be an opportunity for questions and answers.

The presentation will be approximately one hour in length, and we offer it free of charge via the Citrix GoToWebinar web conferencing platform. Advanced registration is required; please click here to register.
