ETI project to develop guide to better understand the threats to infrastructure assets from natural hazards

Major infrastructure projects deliver high investment capital assets that need to be resilient to the effects of climate change, extreme weather conditions and other natural hazards.

This project will use a robust evidence base to improve awareness of the range of natural hazards and the methods used to characterise them. This greater awareness has the potential to improve decision making in the investment in design, construction and operation of high value energy infrastructure assets necessary to protect them against the range of threats from natural hazards.

Whilst this applies to new assets, it also applies to ongoing investment or life extension of existing assets.

The guide will be designed to be easy to use and accessible to project engineers making decisions about a range of future infrastructure projects, including energy assets, road and rail schemes and residential developments.
