New book from Antti Silvast: Making Electricity Resilient

Making Electricity Resilient: Risk and Security in a Liberalized Infrastructure -- Antti Silvast

Antti Silvast, a research fellow with the Energy and Society Research group, has just published Making Electricity Resilient: Risk and Security in a Liberalized Infrastructure with Routledge. Drawing on an innovative multi-sited approach, the book unpacks the work of the authorities, electricity companies, and lay persons that keeps energy systems from failing and helps them to recover from disruptions if they occur. The book explores a number of important sites: the historical security policy of energy infrastructures; control rooms where electricity is traded and maintained in real time; and electricity consumers in their homes.
