Creating a robust contingency plan for power outages

The reliability on the UK’s energy has never been put into question more. As power cuts continue to dominate headlines, the ripple effect this can have on data centres, the healthcare industry and manufacturers could be significant. In a recent survey of 200 UK energy decision makers, Aggreko found that 82 per cent described power continuity as a major or significant concern. However, as many as one quarter admitted they did not have a business contingency plan for power outage in place.  And those that do have a contingency planning process in place, commented that there is no guarantee that it can be implemented.

In our latest industry report, you can find out what the key challenges are for your business, in order to best approach contingency planning for your business. The report can help with understanding:
• The problem in numbers
• Why contingency planning is imperative
