Adapting Existing Energy Planning, Simulation, and Operational Models for Resilience Analysis

This report explores how to effectively integrate resilience considerations into energy sector models and tools. The overarching goal of the effort was to evaluate the data needs, methodologies, and outcomes—including consequences and/or changes in investment or operational decisions due to avoided consequences—for resilience analysis in a range of existing tools. In particular, we selected five models—originally built at NREL to explore non-resilience energy research questions—in which to implement and exercise resilience metrics and analysis approaches.
