4:00 p.m. Dominion’s System Resiliency and Substation Physical Security Plan
Dominion Virginia Power serves our nation’s Capital region and several major commercial and military installations. The criticality of the mid-Atlantic service territory brings with it national security implications and responsibilities that go hand-in-hand with the obligation to provide reliable power. In September 2013, the company announced plans to make significant annual investments over the next 5-7 years and harden the regional electrical system to better protect critical equipment, enhance the spare equipment process, and create multiple levels of security. Now several months into the first year of their initiative, panelists will describe how the company embarked on this plan and established substation perimeter security criteria. Also, the Dominion team will use representative “case study” examples to illustrate all the work that goes into transitioning to new security standards, overcoming engineering challenges, and creating solutions for meeting permitting and land uses approvals.
