The wise words of Karen Wayland are profound:

Karen Wayland contributed to the energy resilience portion of the energy review when she worked at the Department of Energy and now she's CEO of Gridwise, an alliance of utilities, energy companies and other groups that is pushing for a modernized electrical grid.
"We're seeing it already," Wayland said. "It's here."
And she argued the energy infrastructure has to be ready for what's coming.
"When you think about recovering from storms, you have to assume that what we're going to get in five, 10 years will be more severe than what we're getting even now as a result of climate change," she said, adding that cybersecurity must also be addressed.
Reliability is first, and foremost, a technical problem to solve, which cannot be solved using economic only market designs, as Texas and California have proven.

This isn't news to most of the wonks here on Energy Central, but seeing it being promoted heavily in mainstream outlets like where you're linking is so important-- only when it becomes a wider acknowledged and understood issue with the political pressure come. The $73B proposed in the infrastructure bill is a good start, though!
