Prioritize Your Capital Spending and O&M Efforts with Transmission Systems Wildfire Risk Assessment

Transmission Line Track | Thursday, June 29, 11 a.m.
Presenter:  Ben McKinsey

Learn how to create a system with long-term resilience using a risk visualization tool to support the decision making necessary for strategic and cost-effective plans that minimize wildfire-related service failures. 

By analyzing existing transmission infrastructure and reviewing a wildfire’s ability to produce damage within your local service area, you can gain perspective regarding exposure to risk from service outages and capital losses. You can then prioritize short-term maintenance and spending efforts to immediately address the highest risk areas, and evaluate long-term capital budgets to help prioritize projects that reduce your unique relative risk profile and improve system reliability.

Main Take-Aways:

  • Understand how using a risk assessment tool can help support your short- and long-term planning to minimize wildfire-related service failures.
  • Gain perspective on key variables that increase your risk and impact your system reliability
  • Learn how further analysis can be applied to help you prioritize short- and long-term maintenance and capital spending.
