At the request of Congress, the Department of Energy asked the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine to organize a study to identify technologies, policies, and organizational strategies to increase the resilience and reliability of the U.S. electricity system.  The study committee was comprised of seventeen experts from across various sectors.  Over the course of a year and a half, the committee collected input from stakeholders in academia, government, and industry before authoring their final report, which was independently peer-reviewed.  The National Academies asked the committee to address technical, policy, and institutional factors that might affect how modern technology can be implemented to improve the resilience of the electric system; recommend strategies and priorities for how this might be achieved; and identify barriers to its implementation.  The committee’s final report “Enhancing the Resilience of the Nation’s Electricity System” was released by the National Academies Press in July 2017.  This webinar will summarize the findings and recommendations presented in this report, and features three members of the committee:

Dr. M. Granger Morgan from Carnegie Mellon University and the chairman of the committee,
Mr. Jeff Dagle, an expert in electricity resilience from the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory,
Moderator: Carl Pechman, Ph.D., Director, NRRI
