The impact of natural disasters on utility infrastructure is potentially devastating and can cause severe disruption to the continuity of energy supply to consumers. During 2016 alone, natural disasters around the world cost utility companies approximately $210 billion in repairs and fines across 315 separate events.
Many utilities find themselves poorly prepared for disasters due to multiple constraints within their core IT systems. However, today, techniques and tools are available that can enhance utilities’ disaster management capabilities. Losses resulting from calamities or natural disasters have risen to unprecedented levels in the last four years world over.
Do utility companies have a robust disaster operations management plan in place? If not, there might be a steep price to pay.
