The paper looks at the main blackout causes and associated risks, while offering recommendations and best practices to prevent and mitigate them.

A simplified ‘bow tie’ model is used to present the threats and technical as well as operational barriers that contribute to the increasing or decreasing likelihood of blackout, and the mitigating barriers for supporting recovery. The paper’s 5-step structure makes the information and practical tools easy to access and implement.
