Abstract

The reliability of electricity supply is in modern societies generally on a very high level. However, there have been power interruptions that have severely impacted on the functioning of a society, and on the safety and well-being of citizens - and the possibility for severe interruptions remains also in future. Responsibility to prepare against power interruptions does not rest in Finland only with network operators, but responsible are also electricity users and public actors like rescue services and municipalities. The topic of this paper is the preparedness of Finnish electricity users against major disturbances in supply of electric power. The paper is based on a questionnaire study directed to 86 Finnish distribution system operators. According to the questionnaire, with a response rate of about 60 per cent, it seems that there would be a need to enhance the preparedness against major disturbances in almost every electricity user type.
