Using the response to the 2017 hurricane season as a case study, this session explores the roles a PE plays in disaster recovery, both immediate and long term. The session looks at how resiliency, renewables (e.g., solar hybrid) and distributed generation (e.g., microgrids, and diesel generators plus battery storage) can be included as a better way for power in more rugged, storm-prone, and remote environments. The case study looks at the assessment of temporary power needs and the mobilization of over 700 temporary generator sets to power critical infrastructure in the critical months after the disaster. With the near total destruction of Puerto Rico’s electrical transmission and distribution and high-profile failures to restore the network, the case study then looks at the long-term effort to restore power and take stock of the lessons learned.
