Aviation facilities are vulnerable to incidents on the electricity grid that expose them to power outage. Power outages create significant operational disruptions and they can last several hours (e.g., 2017 ATL 11-hr outage, 2020 Texas outage). Are they best practices (incl. micro-grid explored in ACRP Synthesis 91) that can help increasing power supply resiliency?
Airports are increasingly interested in bringing multi-discipline subject matter experts together in a common environment to improve collaborative decision making during regular and irregular operations. Guidance on how to plan and design for these centers is needed.
