Subject: "Energy Security of Military and Industrial Installations with Emergent Conditions of Regulation, Technology, Environment, and Others" View the presentation (23.5 MB PDF)
Mr. Lambert will describe how military and industrial installations are enabling their continuity of operations with outages of the public electrical grid. The focus will be how owner/operators, utilities, regulators, technology vendors, and others interact to make innovative and cost-effective and environment-friendly choices related to the technologies and systems engineering. The relevant principles and methods of decision analysis, risk analysis, and scenario-impact analysis will be introduced through a case study of a major installation that has unique requirements for quality prime power not currently able to be met by the electric utility.
Mr. Lambert is a Senior Member of the IEEE and a licensed Professional Engineer in the Commonwealth of Virginia. He joined the University of Virginia faculty in 1996. He is an Associate Editor of the IEEE Transactions on Systems, Man, and Cybernetics-Part A, and a Councilor and Chair of the Conferences and Workshops Committee of the Society for Risk Analysis. He is coauthor of over sixty archival publications addressing risk of extreme and catastrophic events. His research sponsors include the US Army Corps of Engineers, Virginia Department of Transportation, Federal Highway Administration, Department of Homeland Security, Virginia Department of Emergency Management, and Virginia Governor's Office of Commonwealth Preparedness.
