Disaster preparedness offers big payoffs for utilities

Source(s):  World Bank, the (WB)

This knowledge brief outlines key considerations for building the resilience of electric utility systems to natural hazards. The brief notes that good planning is central to building this resilience, by building back better after a disaster or replacing depreciated, obsolete, or damaged equipment with hazard-hardy components.

Other considerations include achieving the right balance between resilience and the cost of electricity, standardising equipment and better management of inventory, and ways to focus investments on resilient infrastructure.
