Role of Structural Resiliency in System Resiliency 

Wednesday, March 10, 2021 | 12:00 - 1:00 p.m. EST

 

The term resiliency has garnered a lot of attention in the utility industry in recent years. Both electric and telecommunication utility companies have moved resiliency to the forefront of many of their key initiatives. The ability to withstand a low probability, high impact event (weather, fire, seismic, or cyber-attack), and recover quickly from that event to normal operations has utilities re-thinking how they invest in their infrastructure.  To improve a system’s resiliency there are many factors that need to be considered. One of the most important, but often overlooked, factors is the resiliency of the structures that hold up these critical electric and telecommunication connections. 

This webinar will cover the role that structural resiliency plays in the overall system resiliency of our electric and telecommunication grid through the following topics:

  • Overview of aspects to system resiliency 
  • The impact of poor structural resiliency on overall system resiliency
  • Methods to identify weak structural resiliency in your system

Presenters:

Nelson Bingel, NESC

Chad Newton, Osmose
