Guide to emergency preparedness in public institutions

Denmark | November 2009 - April 2010

In 2010 the Danish Energy Authority (now the Danish Energy Agency) asked Ea Energy Analyses to carry out a set of guidelines for emergency preparedness in public institutions in relation to power failures. The guidelines were updated in January 2012.

The guidelines contain a short description of the robustness of the power system, the probability of power failures and how it is possible to prepare for these. Furthermore the work included guidelines for estimation of critical power consumption within the institutions, organisation of the emergency preparedness and selection of back-up power solutions.

The project was carried out in cooperation with Dansk Energi Analyse.
