Join us at this year’s Annual Improving Right of Way Processes for Electric Transmission Projects Conference.  We’re a sponsor and also have a great session lined up. So, save a spot in your busy schedule to learn more about our approach to utility risk assessment.

Utility Wildfire Risk Assessment

Monday, September 18 
11:15 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. 

The potential of damages to critical power infrastructure is a major concern to many utilities and transmission companies. Right of way services often support both emergency and long-term corridor and access changes due to wildfire risks. This presentation will provide insight into an effective process to assess critical power infrastructure assets and develop a preventative plan to better protect those assets from wildfire risks. 

As part of developing short-term operation and maintenance plans as well as broader long-term planning efforts, utilities can evaluate the risk to infrastructure and the potential for performance failure to their power transmission system due to wildfire within their operating region(s). During this session, utilities will learn about a framework and risk visualization tool to support the decision-making necessary to develop strategic, cost-effective plans to reduce or minimize service failures as result of wildfire, and therefore, produce a system that exhibits long-term resilience to this threat.

Presenter: Barry Moyes, Project Manager
