Since electric power is critical to the provision of a wide range of social services and to disaster recovery, the objective of this expert meeting was to identify strategies that could be used to improve the resilience and speed the restoration of transmission and distribution systems after disasters, as well as assure the continued provision of critical electricity-dependent social services during disasters.

This event was presented in collaboration with the National Academies’ Resilient America Roundtable and the Board on Energy and Environmental Systems in collaboration with EPRI and NARUC
