Conceptual Framework for Developing Resilience Metrics for the Electricity, Oil, and Gas Sectors in the United States

This report addresses the topics of measuring and increasing energy resilience, including definitions, means of measuring, and analytic methodologies that can be used to make decisions for policy, infrastructure planning, and operations. A risk-based framework is presented which provides a standard definition of a resilience metric. Additionally, a process is identified which explains how the metrics can be applied. Research and development is articulated that will further accelerate the resilience of energy infrastructures.
