Securing Assets and Mitigating Risks to An Increasingly Complex Electrical Grid
Welcome to the 5th Annual Power Grid Resilience Summit!
The reliability of the U.S. electric power grid, as an underlying enabler for other critical infrastructure sectors (such as emergency services, communications, transportation, and others), is uniquely essential to protect.
In today's modern world, the power grid serves as the backbone of the United States critical infrastructure sector. The Utilities responsible for this tremendous responsibility have to constantly adapt to new and emerging challenges, many of which were never imagined during the creation of the current power grid.
It is financially impractical to pursue every solution simultaneously. Rather, grid owners and operators need identify new technologies and their potential impact on the safety and resiliency of the power grid quickly. This event will help identify key challenges and opportunities, as well as showcasing new technologies that will assist in the creation of a more secure grid.

Challenges and Requirements for Tomorrow's Electrical Power Grid
As the United States economy and society have become more reliant on the uninterrupted flow of electricity, the power grid upon which it depends for that supply has experienced deteriorating reliability. The grid loses power 285 percent more often today than in 1984. These power losses impose tens of billions of dollars of losses on American businesses each year.
Connecting Microgrids With Public-Private Partnerships To Meet Critical Needs
Moving forward with plans to address the modernization needs of the nation’s electric grid is a vast undertaking, estimated to require some $2 trillion of investment over the next two decades. Providing the electricity that has become so essential to all aspects of American business, governmental and daily life requires updating not only the infrastructure and technology.
