This progress occurs through improved data collection, modeling, and analysis to support resilience planning; private and public–private partnerships supporting coordinated action; and both development and deployment of new, innovative energy technologies for adapting energy assets to extreme weather hazards.

## Properties of the finding:
   gcis:findingProcess "<p>We sought an author team that could bring diverse experience, expertise, and perspectives to the chapter. Some members have participated in past assessment processes. The team’s diversity adequately represents the spectrum of current and projected impacts on the various components that compose the Nation’s complex energy system and its critical role to national security, economic well-being, and quality of life. The author team has demonstrated experience in the following areas:</p> <ul> <li><p>characterizing climate risks to the energy sector—as well as mitigation and resilience opportunities—at national, regional, and state levels;</p></li> <li><p>developing climate science tools and information for characterizing energy sector risks;</p></li> <li><p>supporting local, state, and federal stakeholders with integrating climate change issues into long-range planning;</p></li> <li><p>analyzing technological, economic, and business factors relevant to risk mitigation and resilience; and</p></li> <li><p>analyzing energy system sensitivities to drivers such as policy, markets, and physical changes.</p></li> </ul> <p>In order to develop Key Messages, the author team characterized current trends and projections based on wide-ranging input from federal, state, local, and tribal governments; the private sector, including investor-owned, state, municipal, and cooperative power companies; and state-of-the-art models developed by researchers in consultation with industry and stakeholders. Authors identified recent changes in the energy system (that is, a growing connectivity and electricity dependence that are pervasive throughout society) and focused on how these transitions could affect climate impacts, including whether the changes were likely to exacerbate or reduce vulnerabilities. Using updated assessments of climate forecasts, projections, and predictions, the team identified key vulnerabilities that require near-term attention and highlighted the actions being taken to enhance energy security, reliability, and resilience.</p>"^^xsd:string;
   
   gcis:descriptionOfEvidenceBase "<p>Several entities have identified evidence for the planning and deployment of resilience solutions in the energy sector. Support comes from both industry and federal agencies, including the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).{{< tbib '3' 'f9f08a1a-4e9f-462f-a96e-3342cc6b7813' >}}<sup class='cm'>,</sup>{{<tbib '37' 'bfbe6a45-89c6-4f56-b8a9-9a655cb9d91a' >}}<sup class='cm'>,</sup>{{<tbib '38' '30fa21f9-4b83-4af6-bad0-61684ad53f27' >}}<sup class='cm'>,</sup>{{<tbib '39' '7139deaa-2be6-4d5a-a298-a6e4a9f4e30e' >}}<sup class='cm'>,</sup>{{<tbib '40' 'a895ce8f-3fd2-43fe-b6dd-1cb666c96c37' >}}<sup class='cm'>,</sup>{{<tbib '41' '1464b93b-c1be-463d-b8f5-218ec6b58df9' >}}<sup class='cm'>,</sup>{{<tbib '42' '22a92508-496c-48f4-80d8-8bddb1500083' >}} For example, the DOE’s recent efforts, reflected in the <em>Quadrennial Energy Review</em>{{< tbib '1' 'df09ee8d-ac10-4cd4-bcb1-a087c727d891' >}}<sup class='cm'>,</sup>{{<tbib '2' 'f0d12f1c-4eea-41ee-a818-58ad09513531' >}} and the <em>Quadrennial Technology Review</em>,{{< tbib '45' 'd707f6f9-107d-4170-bd0b-c14d7a66b395' >}} examine how to modernize our Nation’s energy system and technologies to promote economic competitiveness, energy security and reliability, and environmental responsibility. Through the Partnership for Energy Sector Climate Resilience, the DOE and partner utilities provide examples of plans and implementation of resilience solutions, as well as barriers to expanded investments in resilience.{{< tbib '3' 'f9f08a1a-4e9f-462f-a96e-3342cc6b7813' >}}<sup class='cm'>,</sup>{{<tbib '76' 'a0278b11-0a3c-4bee-b087-a5072f86d65e' >}} This Key Message gains further support from the EPA’s work with industry and local and state governments through its Creating Resilient Water Utilities program,{{< tbib '93' '5c78eb9f-8faa-4277-b2b1-021b650a4e9b' >}} as well as from the collaboration of the DHS with private sector critical infrastructure owners and operators through its National Infrastructure Protection Plan Security and Resilience Challenge.{{< tbib '94' '91541b19-32f2-40d5-8cff-9da746fbab0a' >}} In addition, a growing constituency of cities, municipalities, states, and tribal communities are dedicating resources and personnel toward identifying, quantifying, and responding to climate change related risks to energy system reliability and the social services that depend on those systems.{{< tbib '3' 'f9f08a1a-4e9f-462f-a96e-3342cc6b7813' >}}<sup class='cm'>,</sup>{{<tbib '73' 'd75aae80-11ea-49c8-8d65-c3ecb3a58ed8' >}} For example, the Rockefeller Foundation’s 100 Resilient Cities and C40 Cities are both networks of the world’s cities committed to addressing resilience.

   gcis:newInformationAndRemainingUncertainties "<p>The most significant uncertainties affecting future investments in climate resilience are related to evaluating the costs, benefits, and performance of resilience investments—and the costs of inaction. To make informed investments, decision-makers need standardized cost–benefit frameworks and methodologies, as well as reliable, high-resolution (temporal and spatial) climate change projections of critical weather and climate parameters.{{< tbib '1' 'df09ee8d-ac10-4cd4-bcb1-a087c727d891' >}}<sup class='cm'>,</sup>{{<tbib '2' 'f0d12f1c-4eea-41ee-a818-58ad09513531' >}}<sup class='cm'>,</sup>{{<tbib '3' 'f9f08a1a-4e9f-462f-a96e-3342cc6b7813' >}}<sup class='cm'>,</sup>{{<tbib '76' 'a0278b11-0a3c-4bee-b087-a5072f86d65e' >}}</p> <p>The high complexity of the energy system introduces uncertainty in whether particular actions could yield unintended consequences. Using the examples above, energy storage, distributed generation, microgrids, and other technologies and practices can contribute to resilience. However, unless evaluated in a systematic manner, the adoption of technologies and practices will likely lead to unintended consequences, including environmental (such as air quality), economic, and policy impacts.</p> <p>Significant uncertainty is also found in the future pace of mitigation efforts that will, in turn, influence the need for resilience investments. Some level of climate change will continue, given past and current emissions of heat-trapping greenhouse gases. However, without an effective mitigation strategy, the need for additional adaptation and resilience investments becomes greater. Uncertainty about the rate of stabilizing and reducing greenhouse gas emission levels (mitigation) compounds the challenge of characterizing the magnitude and timing of additional resilience investments.</p> <p>The pace of development and deployment of resilient cost-effective energy technologies are also uncertain and will likely be critical to implementing resilience strategies at scale. These technologies will likely include improvements in areas such as energy storage, distributed generation, microgrids, and cooling for thermoelectric power plants.{{< tbib '1' 'df09ee8d-ac10-4cd4-bcb1-a087c727d891' >}}<sup class='cm'>,</sup>{{<tbib '2' 'f0d12f1c-4eea-41ee-a818-58ad09513531' >}}<sup class='cm'>,</sup>{{<tbib '3' 'f9f08a1a-4e9f-462f-a96e-3342cc6b7813' >}}<sup class='cm'>,</sup>{{<tbib '31' '8c3c0bd1-7344-4c38-af03-a9a9d5c13553' >}}<sup class='cm'>,</sup>{{<tbib '76' 'a0278b11-0a3c-4bee-b087-a5072f86d65e' >}}</p> "^^xsd:string;
