Impacts of Extreme Weather Events on Renewable Energy Generation

How to mitigate extreme weather impacts on energy output generation facilities

March 24, 2021

Join Exponent engineers and explore energy grid vulnerability during extreme weather conditions

The recent historic winter storm in Texas exposed the fact that energy generation failures present considerable risks to the entire power grid during extreme weather events, ranging from temporarily decreased energy output to full generation outages and permanent damage to grid components and facilities.

Exponent engineers explore the risks to wind and solar energy installations from extreme weather including extreme heat, snow and ice, wind, and lightning in this webinar, "Impacts of Extreme Weather Events on Renewable Energy Generation."

What you'll learn:

  • Technologies used to mitigate risks to the power grid
  • Risk assessment methods for evaluating how renewable energy installations might be exposed to extreme weather events
