Toolkit for resilient cities: case study - New York city electrical grid

Source(s):  Siemens

This case study presents a high level review of the vulnerabilities in the electrical grid and the steps that could be taken to mitigate risk. It investigates the impacts of four types of natural hazards (drought, heat wave, wind and flood) on the generation, transmission and distribution of electricity, in order to extrapolate how New York City can ensure continuous electricity supply during a range of such extreme events. Finally, it propose a series of actions and investments that will contribute to advancing the resilience of the electrical grid and, in turn, the city.

This case study for the electrical grid of New York City and its metropolitan area was undertaken in order to test the ideas for building resilience in multiple urban infrastructure systems around the globe as part of the work for the project Toolkit for resilient cities
