The workshop brought together experts from governments and researchers to collaborate and share knowledge about the resilience of power grids. Ensuring the resilience of power grids has become imperative due to climate change and extreme weather, Srivastava explained.

The full-day workshop was held as part of Resilience Week and was co-organized by IEEE Power and Energy Society Task Force on Resilience Metrics and Evaluation Method and the Task Force on Tools for Power Grid Resilience. 

Srivastava spoke about tools for power grid resiliency and gave an update on the IEEE task force. 

The workshop provided a common platform working with Resilience Week organizers to enable interaction and discussion among multiple groups in the United States and Europe. Approximately 200 people participated in the workshop.
