Managing Natural Disasters & Building Energy Infrastructure Resilience
Seasonal hurricanes, wildfires, floods, extreme heat, and deep cold spells serve as annual reminders of the vulnerability of manmade infrastructure versus the power of nature. How is the power grid being hardened and energy infrastructure made more resilient to ensure reliability of supply? How are natural disasters and their increasing frequency shaping strategy, planning, risk assessment, and emergency response among owners and operators of energy infrastructure? From concept to delivery and development, how do resilience and reliability permeate the design of energy infrastructure? Speakers Scott DeGeeter, Vice President, Power Operating Assets Services Leader, Black & Veatch Steve Powell, Executive Vice President of Operations, Southern California Edison Lynnae Wilson, Senior Vice President, High Voltage Operations, CenterPoint Energy Chair Chad Singleton, Associate Director, Gas, Power & Renewables, IHS Markit
