The Department of Energy today released details about the motivations and scope of its latest resilience push — a first-of-its-kind model of grid vulnerabilities across the entire North American continent.
The North American Energy Resiliency Model from the Office of Electricity aims to map out the resilience risks and interdependencies of the grid that have evolved over the past decade as the generation mix has flipped toward more natural gas and renewable energy.
"NAERM will serve as a critical 'what-if' machine to help the nation answer vexing questions to best protect our energy infrastructure," DOE said in the report directed by Congress.
