DOE’s Office of Electricity Delivery and Energy Reliability has made available State and Regional Energy Risk Profiles that examine the relative magnitude of risks at the state and regional level and highlight energy infrastructure trends and impacts. The profiles present both natural and man-made hazards with the potential to cause disruption of the electric, petroleum, and natural gas infrastructures. The profiles were developed by DOE as part of the State Energy Risk Assessment Initiative as a means to help states better understand energy infrastructure risks and inform investments, resilience decisions. The Initiative is a collaborative effort between DOE, NASEO, the National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners, National Conference of State Legislatures, and National Governors Association.
The profiles are available for download on DOE’s State Energy Risk Assessment Initiative website.
