Special Report: Grids Turn to High-Resolution Climate Analytics as a Strategic Tool for Resiliency Planning

State-of-the-art Earth and data science enable forward-thinking utilities like Hawaiian Electric to prepare for climate-change-driven extreme weather


As climate change causes more frequent and more extreme weather events—storm surges, hurricanes, high winds, prolonged precipitation, extremes of heat and cold, wildfires, and drought—major electric utilities worldwide are collaborating with private industry, academia, and stakeholders (especially their customers) to improve grid resiliency and optimize the safe and reliable delivery of electric energy.

​This Jupiter Intelligence special report, part one in a series, examines the urgency behind climate resiliency initiatives in the electric utilities industry; the essential role that high-resolution risk modeling, based on novel data sources and best-in-science climate analytics, can play in these efforts; and the noteworthy efforts being undertaken by Hawaiian Electric and other pioneers among utilities.
