Storm Response and Management Survey

Storm preparation and response is obviously nothing new. 2017 saw numerous high-profile storms, drawing media attention as well as focusing the attention of utilities, regulators, policymakers, and the general public on efforts to manage and respond as effectively as possible. To better understand the strategies and priorities that utilities across North America are embracing for these preparation and response efforts, Southwire Company partnered with the Utility Dive Brand Studio to survey more than 100 industry executives.
