Utility Week

10 October 2012

 

PA’s Gregg Edeson, energy expert, is quoted in an article in Utility Week on extreme weather conditions. The article identifies preparation, rapid response and insurance as the vital factors for utility resilience through winter weather.

Gregg explains that planning for contingency and prevention is vital when it comes to electricity transmission and distribution: “Preparation is very important, from investing in hardening circuits and tree trimming where they threaten power lines, through to staff training.”

Gregg goes on to say that, in the US, which is familiar with Arctic conditions,  hurricanes, extreme heat and flooding, the winter weather surpasses anything the UK suffers. He explains that utility companies are put through routine emergency drills to ensure their skills are up to scratch.
