Title: Power Sector Resilience Planning Guidebook: A Self-Guided Reference for Practitioners

Abstract

The provision of reliable, secure, and affordable electricity is essential to power economic growth and development. The power system is at risk from an array of natural, human-caused, and technological threats, which can cause everything from power interruption to chronic undersupply of energy. It is critical for policymakers, planners, and system operators to safeguard their power systems from these threats by proactively planning for future needs and investing in resilient power systems. This guidebook is a reference for power sector resilience planning that introduces policymakers, power sector investors, planners, system operators, and other energy-sector stakeholders to the key concepts and steps involved in power sector resilience planning. Users can then apply this knowledge in the development of strategic, country-specific processes and identify actions that increase power sector resilience. This guidebook can be used as a stand-alone resource or shared with participants at stakeholder workshops to facilitate discussions and complete key steps of a resilience planning process.
