Measuring the resilience of energy distribution systems

Measuring the resilience of energy distribution systems

The U.S. economy depends on reliable and affordable distribution of energy. However, energy distribution systems are vulnerable to a diverse and dynamic set of disruptions. In response, the U.S. Department of Energy is developing strategy to improve the resilience of the nation's energy systems, and it asked RAND to develop a framework for measuring the resilience of energy distribution systems and to summarize the state of metrics for resilience of the electric power, refined oil, and natural gas distribution systems. This report summarizes the concepts addressed by measures of resilience, describes a framework for organizing alternative metrics used to measure resilience of energy distribution systems, and reviews the state of metrics for resilience of energy distribution systems
