The main objective of the paper is to propose an innovative approach to analyzing the vulnerability of electricity networks from natural hazards. The proposed innovative approach is based on the principles (technology) of virtual reality (VR). The main features and advantages of VR are discussed. The possibilities of VR for the study of the negative impact of natural hazards on the infrastructure are analyzed. The importance and timeliness of an in-depth analysis of the vulnerability of electricity networks from the current natural hazards is highlighted. In particular, the situation with the Bulgarian electricity networks has been investigated. It is justified that the use of VR allows for a tangible understanding of the potential negative consequences for electricity networks in the occurrence of different types and severity of natural hazards. The idea is the results of the analysis to help managers take more adequate decisions about effective protecting and risk management of electricity networks from natural hazards. The results obtained can be successfully used in the training of students in energy and energy management since VR makes learning safer and remotely operated.
