Event Overview:

Power Grid Resilience 2017 - Securing Assets and Mitigating Risks to An Increasingly Complex Electrical Grid

The 5th Annual Power Grid Resilience Summit 2017 helps identify key challenges and opportunities, as well as showcasing new technologies that will assist in the creation of a secure grid. The reliability of the U.S. electric power grid, as an underlying enabler for other critical infrastructure sectors such as emergency services, communications, transportation, amongst others, is uniquely essential to protect.

The utilities responsible for the tremendous responsibility of this critical infrastructure sector have to constantly adapt to new and emerging challenges, many of which were never imagined during the creation of the current power grid.

The three-day program begins with an in-depth Workshop Day, that looks at top issues such as mitigating breaches at HV substations to operational challenges of replacing a damaged transformer. Over the two days of the main conference, attendees will hear from utility security executives, government regulators, thought leaders, and academics to address challenges and growth areas to building Power Grid Resilience.
