eReliability Tracker Interruption Cost Report

Learn about the ICE Calculator, a tool for estimating the cost of outages now embedded within the eReliability Tracker.
November 28, 2017

12:00-1:00pm Eastern.

The American Public Power Association entered into a cooperative agreement with the Department of Energy (DOE) to do work in utility security, reliability, and resiliency. Through this funding, the Association created a tool to help utilities better understand and estimate the cost of outages, which would in turn help utilities discern the cost value of increased reliability and resiliency.

The result of this effort is an implementation of the ICE Calculator as a report in the eReliability Tracker. The report essentially applies the model to your utility’s actual outage data to calculate an estimated cost of interruption. The resulting cost can serve as an additional point of information to consider when you evaluate and prioritize system improvements.

The Interruption Cost report in the eReliability Tracker is available to all users of the eReliability Tracker. Come join this webinar to learn more about the the coordinated project between the Association, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, and DOE.
