Reliability & Resilience in the Balance: After the Report Lessons Learned from Winter Storm 2021 and Beyond

When a major crisis hits and lives are impacted the response from most organizations is parochial and agenda driven. ASCE volunteers from across the State started unraveling the issues and problems while the storms were still raging outside our homes. The early analysis confirmed that a much more complex problem of interdependence between infrastructure sectors combined with policies and markets structures that undermined reliability and resilience. This team was also driven to make substantive recommendations and proposed actions that would meaningfully address the identified problems. Following the issuance of the reports and various regulatory filings, a unified community of various committees within ASCE are now actively helping to communicate and advocate for the changes need with industry, regulators and legislators. The issue of revenue sufficiency for infrastructure impairs the reliability and resilience of all infrastructure and touch every member of ASCE and the public. Our objective remains to help ensure that Reliability and Resilience are prioritized, appropriately funded and supported on an ongoing basis.
