A perfect storm: climate change, the power grid, and regulatory regime change after network failure

This case study explores electric grid failure in the aftermath of a major storm. The thick description of the event highlights broader issues of climate change, the changing regulatory regime of electricity provision, and urban network vulnerability. The reaction to the storm forced a shift in the regulatory regime from one that stressed cost reductions and return on investment to one that also encompassed issues of grid resiliency and service reliability.
