NWPPA Engineering & Operations Conference & Trade Show

Join us at the Engineering & Operations Conference and Trade Show where HDR thought leader Ben McKinsey will present a session titled “Utility Risk Assessment of T&D Systems."

With major storms, wildfires, and other natural disaster events becoming the new norm, utilities must consider these threats to their infrastructure when performing system planning and capital budgeting. By completing a risk assessment of your transmission and distribution assets, you will be able to invest your budgets more efficiently to attain a system that’s more resilient. This will result in a reduction of your overall service outages, therefore increasing your overall system reliability.

The NWPAA Engineering & Operations event theme is “Powering Forward in a Sea of Change,” recognizing that we are seeing fundamental changes in the industry. The conference will help utility workers address the challenges of running electric utilities today and into the future.
