In January of this year, the American Gas Foundation published Building a Resilient Energy Future: How the Gas System Contributes to US Energy System Resilience, a study that examines our nation’s energy system and its ability to prevent, withstand, adapt to, and quickly recover from damage or operational disruption.  During this session, Mr. Murphy will provide a briefing on the key findings from the study that demonstrate the important contributions natural gas local distribution companies (LDCs) provide to energy system resilience.
