Event Overview

2nd Annual Power Grid Resilience

In an era of sever weather, unprecedented physical threats and unrelenting cyber incursions, increased pressure and focus on the resilience of the US power grid has become the norm. US utilities face a web of state and federal compliance frameworks, public pressure on everything from rate spikes to terrorist threats to emergency preparedness, and a critical need to replace aging infrastructure while ensuring a robust, resilient and secure grid. 

Utilities need to prioritise the right projects that will protect critical assets from sabotage, theft and terrorism, prevent disruption to customers, increase public confidence in their service, restore service swiftly after an outage and maintain/prepare for compliance with current and future regulatory standards.

Power Grid Resilience 2015 will gather utility executives, regulatory bodies, and industry providers to take a deep dive into the security strategies, innovative technologies and immediate implementation of near-term and relatively low-cost steps to make our grid significantly more resilient. This event offers an unprecedented opportunity for industry providers to share their capabilities with the most active audience in the market. The event also delivers "here's how-to-do-it" methodologies to help you implement, manage and lead incident prevention & recovery efforts in your utility.

At the event, visitors will gain insights gleaned from in-depth research about today's newest physical security measures and remote monitoring of substations technologies and also will have the opportunity to meet one-on-one with the Director of the SAFETY Act from DHS to discuss anti-terrorism strategies, tactics and technologies.
