Planning for the next power outage

On the evening of Friday 9th August, a major blackout cut the power to a million homes and businesses in England and Wales. In the resulting chaos, thousands of people were left stranded in train stations and airports, while traffic light failures ground some of the country’s busiest roads to a halt. Energy regulator OFGEM has launched an investigation into whether the National Grid and 12 local electricity network companies breached their licence conditions in the event of the power outage. Lee Stokes, head of sustainability solutions & innovation for Mitie Energy, looks back at August’s UK-wide power outage and reveals how businesses can build resilience should the worst happen.
