    Real Grid Resilience

    New Study Answers the Question, ‘What is Grid Resilience?’

    Rama Zakaria and Michael Panfil, May 7, 2018 (EDF Energy Exchange via Energy Collective)

    “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
