Grid Analysis and Design for Energy and Infrastructure Resiliency for New Orleans

The heightened risk coastal cities like New Orleans, Lousiana (NOLA) encounter from hurricanes, floods, and other natural disasters is never farther than the memory of Hurricane Katrina. During such events, extended disruption of electric grid operations exacerbate interruption of energy intensive infrastructures vital to recovery, including flood control operations, water supply and treatment, transportation, emergency response, and banking. The resilience of communities is dependent on grid resilience.
