White Paper: Reinventing Electrical Resiliency

This paper discusses a variety of risks to electric infrastructure to demonstrate the impact on the current electric system – from equipment failure due to an aging grid, human error, natural disasters, and new threats such as cyberterrorism. It explores how commercial, industrial, and institutional organizations can address electric resiliency challenges through backup power from traditional fuels to the newest technologies. Finally, it compares the different options and discuss the advantages and drawbacks for each option.
