Planning for the Future Electric Grid

2:30 PM - 4:30 PM
January 1, 1970

The impact of severe weather on electric grid reliability & resiliency, as well as innovation opportunities from convergence of ICT (Information, Communication, Technology) with traditional infrastructure, are the key themes for planners for the future. Utility hardening and resiliency efforts have attracted center stage attention in New Jersey over the last couple of years, especially after Superstorm Sandy. The aim of this session is to further educate various stakeholders about the effect of climate change on electric power systems, economic analysis of grid hardening, including the fundamentals of Reliability and Resiliency Analysis, Value of Loss of Load, and measurement of costs and benefits.
