Accessibility to reliable, clean and affordable electricity is an essential component of quality of life. When power systems fail – lives are immediately interrupted and put at risk. And as climate change continues to result in more severe weather episodes, reliability issues will only increase. Our grid systems must be built to adapt to withstand severe shocks to the electrical system and ensure our safety and security are not compromised.
PEER encourages and outlines practices that enable energy infrastructure to be resilient in the face of any natural disasters, reliable in their ability to meet daily needs, sustainable in a way that prioritizes efficiency and mitigates the impacts of climate risk. Through PEER, utilities and cities, transit systems and larger campuses can enhance the resilience of their power systems to ensure that users are never left in a dangerous position.
