The Energy Technologies Institute (ETI) has published a body of research that identifies how natural hazards, such as extreme wind, flooding and hail, can be characterised to help improve energy system infrastructure design and inform investment decisions.
Enabling Resilient UK Energy Infrastructure: Natural Hazard Characterisation Technical Volumes and Case Studies, funded by the ETI and delivered by EDF Energy, the Met Office and Mott Macdonald, has captured the knowledge and learning from the project’s three phases into documents accessible to engineers who have responsibility for new or existing high value energy infrastructure assets.
An event hosted by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) and the Institution of Chemical Engineers (IChemE) on 12th November celebrated the publication of the twelve technical volumes that summarise the state-of-the-art methodology on natural hazard characterisation. Five associated case studies featuring UK sites were also made available to showcase the demonstration of these methodologies.
The research papers and case studies will be housed permanently at the IMechE and IChemE, and also in our Knowledge Zone.
