Storm preparedness and recovery to improve grid reliability and resiliency
July 24, 2015 at 1-2 pm Eastern

Severe weather is the number one cause of power outages in the United States and costs the economy billions of dollars a year in lost output and wages, spoiled inventory, delayed production, inconvenience and damage to grid infrastructure. In addition to physical storms such as hurricanes, utilities must also worry about solar storms and the effects of geomagnetic disturbances on equipment.

This webinar will focus on how utilities can anticipate, mitigate and recover from major storm events faster. From grid hardening, to mobile and outage management solutions, learn how technology, automation, and strategic rapid repair and recovery strategies can lead to more reliable systems and improved customer satisfaction.

Leveraging technology to improve safety and reliability
September 22, 2015 at 1-2 pm Eastern

Five to ten arc explosions occur in electric equipment every day in the United States, consequently, more than 2000 people are treated in burn centers with severe arc-flash injuries each year. In an effort to curb these risks, OSHA recently published its Final Rule for Electric Power Generation, Transmission and Distribution Standards (29 CFR 1910.269 and 1926 Subpart V), with major updates to fall protection, arc flash hazard analysis, minimum approach distance requirements, and arc flash protection requirements.

While we may never be able to prevent all injuries, new technologies exist to mitigate the risk and offer a safer environment for employees, while also ensuring reliable power to your industrial facility. Attend this informative webinar to learn more about how to leverage technology to meet the new OSHA standards and protect your employees from the hazards of arc flash explosions.

Physical security (Part I) - three strategic elements to protect your assets
October 16, 2015 at 2-3 pm Eastern

About once every four days, part of the nation's power grid is struck by a cyber or physical attack. While everyone agrees that the most effective way to protect our nation's critical infrastructure is a combination of deterring, detecting, and delaying would-be attackers, with over 200,000 miles of high-voltage transmission lines and thousands of exposed substations and large electric power transformers, this can seem like a monumental task.

Join us for this informative webinar where we will explore how to approach today's physical security threats; the steps involved to assess and harden your critical equipment; and the new technologies, such as monitoring, to make these tasks easier.

Physical security (Part II) - resiliency and recovery
October 28, 2015 at 1-2 pm Eastern

According to the U.S. Department of Energy, between 2011 and 2014 electric utilities reported 348 physical attacks that caused outages or other power disturbances, and these attacks continue to increase in frequency and complexity. While there are many security options available today to protect your critical infrastructure, it is impossible to be 100% secure with over 200,000 miles of high-voltage transmission lines and thousands of exposed substations and large electric power transformers. That is why a rapid repair and recovery strategy plays a vital role in any physical security plan. 

Attend this educational webinar to review rapid repair and replacement strategies that will help mitigate your risk, reduce outage duration and improve your grid resiliency.
