Energy Safety to Hold Virtual Public Scoping Meeting on Climate Change and Fire-Risk Consequence Modeling

SACRAMENTO – Energy Safety will hold a virtual public scoping meeting on July 25 at 9 a.m. to share ideas and discuss improving fire risk-consequence modeling by incorporating climate factors. Current industry standards and regulations do not provide adequate guidance for applying climate factors such as aridity, heat, vegetation, and wind to fire risk-consequence models. Stakeholders, relevant state agencies, and California’s electrical corporations will participate.
