Managing Emergency and Peaking Power Systems for Facilities and Operations

OnDemand Webinar (117 minutes)

Gain an understanding of the key issues affecting your facilities emergency power systems.

Your CEO wants your power systems to be bulletproof, with no outages or lost production. What is your plan for implementing that vision? From violent storms and wildfires to EMP threats, emergency and backup power systems have never been more important. A loss of power affecting a process batch or a data center can cost millions or billions to a manufacturing operation or cloud technology company. Power reliability is the primary goal of most utility companies - and their largest customers. Nuclear power plants require 100% reliability. Someone may die in surgery if power is lost at a medical facility. An inopportune power outage may result in the loss of your most important commercial anchor tenant. Although many backup power devices are relatively simple to install and operate. The pertinent federal regulatory requirements are not. Since 2002 U.S. EPA has published 28 Federal Register (FR) notices related to stationary engines including various revisions/expansions, corrections, and reconsiderations, plus two other, separate regulations suites affecting new stationary engines. In addition to the regulations themselves, EPA has published thousands of pages of regulatory preamble, guidance memorandums, training materials, compliance tools and templates, letters, and e-mails. This information will give you a concise overview to help you succinctly understand the key issues affecting your facilities and operations.
