Report: rebuilding a resilient Puerto Rico
Hurricane Maria severely damaged Puerto Rico’s infrastructure and created a public health and humanitarian crisis. As the frequency and severity of storms increase, Puerto Rico has an opportunity to be a model of innovation and resilience for areas vulnerable to climate change.
Low-carbon microgrids are key to modernizing the island’s electric system. These local, renewable electricity sources can operate independently of the main grid in the event of a power failure and can help communities bounce back from powerful storms.
