Microgrids for disaster preparedness and recovery with electricity continuity plans and systems: With electricity continuity plans and systems

Source(s):  International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC)

This white paper considers preparation for and recovery from major electricity outages, with a focus on customer-side measures. It examines how disaster preparedness and post-disaster recovery may benefit from standards and the design of plans for coordinated activity.

Microgrids, the white paper explains, are a solution to many of the issues identified in the disaster review. By relying on a variety of generators, a microgrid system avoids many of the single-point-of failure issues of the traditional electricity grid. Key suggestions encourage the operation of microgrids and the implementation of standards to assist disaster relief planning.

The paper is published by the by the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) Market Strategy Board (MSB).
