This figure appears in chapter 24 of the Impacts, Risks, and Adaptation in the United States: The Fourth National Climate Assessment, Volume II report.
Extreme events such as floods, heat waves, wildfires, landslides, and drought play an important role in the vulnerability of infrastructure. The figure, from Seattle City Light's Vulnerability Plan,2bd77a92-b832-4ea3-a6c1-ceba4df79c59 illustrates how the utility’s assets, operations, and management goals are affected by a broad range of climate impacts and extreme events. Adaptation strategies to increase the resilience of the energy system must focus on multiple potential risks as well as environmental considerations.
