What is resilience and how do we measure it? This talk will explore the interconnections between electrical and community resilience, and benchmark efforts to evaluate levels of resilience, as well as endeavors to improve it. It will go into depth on metrics that have been identified that describe portions of resilience, as well as ways to think through the causal, direct and indirect relationships between different metrics. It will also discuss potential paths to quantify the impact of these metrics in monetary terms.
