The Global Energy Data Commons for natural hazard risk assessment for energy systems


The NSF Convergence Accelerator funded Global Energy Data Commons is a web-based platform and community that informs the assessment of natural hazard risks for energy systems. This solution enables users to easily find, view, download, or otherwise integrate natural hazards data—including wildfires, flooding, droughts, earthquakes, and even solar flares—into their risk analysis through consistent data standards and APIs.
