Gathering this information will enable existing requirements and expert knowledge on this subject to be synthesized and made broadly available to interested policy officials and other decision-makers. In addition, this information may aid the Federal Emergency Management Agency in its implementation of the Disaster Recovery Reform Act of 2018, as well as other federal efforts to enhance resilience. Organizing existing knowledge in this way will also help identify important information gaps that can then be addressed through targeted research and development activities and through emergency preparedness actions by government agencies and the private sector. The U.S. Department of Energy also supports actions to enhance the weather-related resilience of other domestic forms of energy infrastructure, particularly oil and natural gas systems. A parallel RFI will be issued to gather analogous resilience information pertinent to those sectors. DATES: Comments must be received on or before August 23, 2019. ADDRESSES: Email: Interested persons are encouraged to submit comments electronically, to grid.resilience@ hq.doe.gov, with ‘‘Grid Resilience’’ in the subject line.
