The discussion, which also featured the Hawaiian perspective on resiliency, covered critical issues such as:
- What has come out of the focus on resiliency post-Irma and Maria? Are grids stronger, are there more distributed assets? What has changed, and where?
- Are regional priorities shifting i.e. away from an all-out clarion call for technical and operational resiliency, to one more focused on the longer-term economic resiliency of grids and the utilities which manage them?
- In the new distributed paradigm, do utilities have the customer base to continue to be economically resilient? What is the essence of the challenge, and what are some of the solutions?
