With an increase in volatile weather events across the US, such as wildfires, storms, and hurricanes, maintaining reliable power in the US has become challenging. Power failures and disruption have become commonplace; a 2018 survey found that one in four companies experience a power outage at least once a month...
Pipelines are notoriously difficult to inspect due to the incredibly vast network they form. In the US, there are 218,970 miles of pipeline carrying a variety of media. Due to the recent surge in US energy production, this capacity is rising to transport US-derived energy to both international and national markets, with a 23,000-mile increase in liquid pipeline and 18,000-mile increase in oil pipeline in the last half-decade, alone.
