Electricity: Federal Efforts to Enhance Grid Resilience

Electricity: Federal Efforts to Enhance Grid Resilience, GAO-17-153: Published: Jan 25, 2017. Publicly Released: Feb 24, 2017. “The nation’s electricity grid faces potential threats from natural disasters and deliberate attacks. We looked at the federal government’s efforts to enhance the grid’s resilience—its ability to adapt to changing conditions and withstand and recover from potentially disruptive events (such as the loss of power lines). The 27 federal efforts to enhance grid resilience focused on enhancing awareness of potential disruptions, coordinating responses, and sharing information between government and private industry (which owns most of the electricity grid). We found these efforts helped enhance and sustain coordination between federal agencies.”
