Beyond the Data

National Labs talk Climate Risk Part 2

Episode Summary

The world’s climate is changing, or as Andy Bochman, Senior Grid Strategist, National & Homeland Security, for Idaho National Lab, likes to say we’re experiencing global weirding. Extreme weather events are occurring more frequently and with higher intensity, impacting the grid and exposing its vulnerabilities. How can utilities better prepare infrastructure for the changing climate and extreme weather events? This two part series on climate risk features Andy, and his colleague Tom Wall, Program Lead, Engineering & Applied Resilience, at Argonne National Laboratory who work with climate models to understand infrastructure resilience. In part two, Andy and Tom talk about adaptive resilience and how to make infrastructure decisions using the data discussed in part one.
