Grid reliability and, importantly, resiliency is paramount and will increasingly become more important as we electrify energy demand in the quest to decarbonize the energy system. Weather patterns are more severe and changing around the world. Being resilient to weather impact is both the ability to withstand a severe event as well as recover from its impact. Emerging innovations, changes in planning and operations, and application of new technologies and techniques will all be necessary to respond to this challenge. The US federal government has recognized this need and is providing significant support in the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA)for this new world.
