From a combination of snow storms, tornadoes, heatwaves and hurricanes, which left a countless number of Americans in the dark, the United States has rung up a damages bill in excess of $29 billion during 2022, and that figure only covers the costs incurred through October.
In the latest episode of NGI’s Hub & Flow podcast, NGI’s Senior Energy Analyst Shaylon Stolk notes that with extreme weather events becoming the new normal, building energy infrastructure that can survive the onslaught has become a major priority.
Stolk discusses the importance of grid reliability, and how utilities are trying to balance the urgent need for new energy infrastructure to meet increasing demands with the long-term necessity of heavily weatherized natural gas and power grids that can adapt to the changing climate.
Believing that transparent markets empower businesses, economies and communities, NGI – which publishes daily, weekly and monthly natural gas indexes at pricing points across North America – works to provide natural gas price transparency for the Americas. NGI’s Hub & Flow podcast is a part of that effort.
