Hurricanes pose significant threats to energy infrastructure, including power generation, transmission, and distribution systems. A resilient energy system is crucial to withstand and recover from the impact of hurricanes, ensuring the continuity of power supply and minimizing disruption to communities. Resilience measures include fortifying power infrastructure against high winds and flooding, implementing robust backup power systems, and strategically locating critical energy facilities to minimize vulnerability. Additionally, incorporating renewable energy sources like solar and wind, along with distributed energy systems, can enhance resilience by diversifying the energy mix and reducing reliance on centralized infrastructure. This block of RE+ Tech presentations explores innovation around hurricane resiliency.
