Extreme weather, natural disasters and bad actors can all disrupt, damage, or destroy power systems infrastructure, and there is an immediate need for solutions that will mitigate multiple hazards. Fortunately, the characteristics of the Smart Grid that are distinct from the traditional power grid can also present opportunities for building a more reliable and resilient power generation and delivery system. Given the need for creating resilience in the Smart Grid as a whole system as well as its components, we invite participation of IEEE Members and others with interest or expertise in reliability to join the Smart Grid Program.

Since no government or republic exists in a vacuum, it is only fair to assume that this commitment will raise an additional few (if not several) trillions of dollars in investments and initiatives by other countries, as also the private sector in the exact same direction.

We want to reflect on the happenings of the past year during December as the end of the year gives us all a reason to hit pause. This year more than most, the IEEE Smart Grid (SG) Program has very much to reflect on. This has been a very productive year, as you will see in the articles from the committee chairs.
