(Read Time: 120 minutes) A resilient energy system is essential to the operation of nearly every critical function and sector of the US economy as well as the communities that depend upon its services. Disruptions to the US energy system create widespread economic and social impacts, including losses in productivity, health and safety issues, and—in the most extreme cases—loss of life. As utilities, system operators, regulators, and policymakers deliberate the design and structure of the future energy infrastructure, they must consider the resilience of the entire energy system. As the transformation of the energy system accelerates, it is important for stakeholders to understand the increasing interdependence of gas and electric systems and their role in creating a more resilient future.
