EUCI - 5th Annual Storm, Planning And Preparation Conference - Houston, TX

This event has passed. The event information on this page is for historical purposes only and links may no longer work.

The rules are changing for utility storm response efforts. Even under the worst of conditions, the expectation is that the lights come back on... fast. Restoring power in the wake of a major storm requires extensive planning and preparation that must be done well in advance of storm season.

When a storm does hit, utilities must be prepared to quickly and effectively assess the damage to their system and provide their customers, regulators, and politicians accurate and timely estimated times of recovery. To do so, utilities must be able to communicate effectively, both internally with their restoration crews, and externally to community stakeholders.

Featuring expert speakers from leading utilities and an extensive focus on forecasting, damage assessment, communications, mutual aid and vendor partnerships, this conference will provide utility attendees with the tools needed to effectively prepare and respond to the next major storm.
