Preparing for Blackouts with Resilience Measures

America’s energy grid is aging, and there are more threats against it than you may think. Resilience for our energy grid comes from the ability to recover quickly from what those in the industry like to call high-impact, low-frequency (HILF) events like a cyber-attack or natural disaster. Deploying effective systems to both respond to energy issues and to recover from disruptions is a broad task that requires coordination and extensive planning from our energy providers as well as government.
