Asia is the region with the most frequent and most severe natural disasters in the world. With the coming of climate change, disaster as typhoon, flood, droughts are becoming more intense while threatening the safe operation of the power system. Rather than a passive response to climate change with a big loss of economy, we proposed a more proactive whole process management, consisting of planning, construction, and emergency management.

Firstly, reasonable planning should go first, as to say, we should be fully dedicated to building up an eco-friendly clean energy system while planning out a robust multi-level power grid. Secondly, in the executing phase, effort should be focused on the construction level up of vulnerable power grid devices to be robust to extreme weather. What's more, in the operation phase, high-level monitoring and internet technology should be applied to make emergency management in advance.
