Abstract: This paper investigates a long-term planning response to the climate-vulnerability of transportation energy infrastructure in the borough of Manhattan, NY. The proposed model, a two-stage stochastic optimization, features a hybrid utility-regret function with increasing relative and decreasing absolute risk aversion. Modeling results suggest (1) investment in early- and late-stage resilience-enhancing solutions as a complementary approach with significant weight on immediate actions, and (2) a decentralized supply chain formation through an early-stage deployment of reservoir tanks within the case study area.
