Resilient Pipes and Wires

2015 – Quality Urban Energy Systems of Tomorrow (QUEST)

Almost 90 percent of Canadian natural gas, thermal and electric utility distributors have been significantly impacted by extreme weather in the past decade. Impacts from a changing climate, including changing temperatures, changing precipitation patterns and increased risk of flood, wildfires, permafrost degradation and hurricanes, have exposed critical energy distribution infrastructure to significant risks in recent years. Resilient Pipes and Wires is focused on documenting how energy distribution companies are adapting to climate change and assessing the role of policymakers and regulators in improving the resilience of energy distribution systems across Canada.
