Documents a probabilistic risk assessment of an existing power supply system at a large telecomm. office. The focus is on characterizing the increase in the reliability of power supply through the use of two alternative power configurations. Failures in the power systems supporting major telecomm. service nodes are a main contributor to major telecomm. outages. A logical approach to improve the robustness of telecomm. facilities would be to increase the depth and breadth of technologies available to restore power in the face of power outages. Distributed energy resources such as fuel cells and

This report reviews these three PMAS' cost recovery practices, financing, & comparison to nonfederal utilities.

Provides an overview of proposed new coal-fired power plants that are under development. This report may not represent all possible plants under consideration, but is intended to illustrate the potential that exists for installations of new coal-fired power plants. Recent experience has shown that public announcements of new coal-fired power plant development do not provide an accurate representation of actual new operating power plants. Actual plant capacity commissioned has historically been significantly less than the new capacity announced. The report focuses on those power plant projects

Virtually all Department of Defense (DoD) weapon systems and equipment rely on power sources, such as batteries. This report determined: (1) DoD's approximate investment in power sources; (2) the extent to which DoD coordinates its power source investments; and (3) the extent to which DoD's policies facilitate the use of standard power sources. To address these objectives, the report obtained and analyzed DoD investment data, met with DoD officials and industry representatives, and attended DoD conferences aimed at facilitating power source coordination.
