    “Whether or not our electric grid is “resilient,” and what if anything should be done to make the grid more resilient, has been a topic of intense scrutiny in the past year…[A Customer-focused Framework for Electric System Resilience] concludes that the most effective resilience solutions [will come from strengthening] distribution, and to a lesser extent transmission…[G]eneration-related solutions – like keeping dirty coal and uneconomic nuclear plants online past their retirement dates – are the least effective for improving resilience…[O]ver 90 percent of customer outages are due to distribution-level problems and most are weather-related. Damage to the transmission system, while infrequent, can lead to more widespread power outages that affect a large number of customers…[G]eneration shortfalls cause a fraction of customer outages – between 2003 and 2017, only 0.2 percent of all customer-outage hours (including 0.0002% from fuel supply problems) were caused by generation shortfalls…” click here for more
