Energy resilience has never been so high on the company agenda...

The UK blackouts in August 2019 left transport systems, businesses, homes and critical sites like hospitals quite literally powerless…

The chaos that ensued, whilst only for a relatively short time, provided a snapshot into how reliant all of our systems are on electricity. The event highlighted not only the ways in which the operator needs to ensure grid resilience, but it emphasised to businesses the gaps in their own site resilience.

This GridBeyond Academy webinar explains the technology and mechanisms in place to help the grid remain stable, minimising the risk of events like this happening again in the UK and across global energy systems too. We’ll also cover how industrial, commercial and institutional sites can take resilience measures into their own hands, even against the severest of electricity grid failures.
