On Monday, November 22, 2004, the IEEE CQR hosted an Emergency Power Conference at the Lucent Bell Labs Network Reliability & Security Office (NRSO) in Washington DC. 46 experts from the electric industry, the communications industry, government and academia met to discuss issues related to providing emergency power to remote communications locations, such as cell sites and remote terminals. The conference began with several presentations followed by open discussion. The group then formed three breakout sessions to address the following issues:

  •  Session 1 – Methods to improve the speed of restoration to remote communication locations.
  •  Session 2 – Identification of factors affecting how much back-up power is required at a remote site.
  •  Session 3 – Best Practice combinations of alternate power sources to provide optimum duration.
