ReliabilityFirst (RF) offers a regularly scheduled monthly call to provide entities and stakeholders with a forum for addressing topics and questions relevant to reliability, resilience and security.

While RF Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) will provide presentations and updates, they will not address entity-specific questions and issues.

Agenda Topics

Supply chain shortages facing the electric grid 

David Batz, Managing Director, Cyber & Infrastructure Security, Edison Electric Institute 

  • As we electrify the grid, expand distribution and transmission, and respond to extreme weather events, maintaining a secure, reliable supply of transformers is critical to our national security. Batz will offer insight on one of the biggest risks the electric grid is facing today – transformer supply chain shortages and dependence on China and other foreign nations for these devices. He will discuss the risks, the challenges, the mitigations, and spare equipment strategies.
