Grid Vulnerability and Microgrid Solutions
“An electromagnetic (EM) attack (nuclear electromagnetic pulse [EMP] or non-nuclear EMP [e.g., highpower microwave, HPM]) has the potential to degrade or shut down portions of the
electric power grid important to the DoD…. Restoring the commercial grid from the
still functioning regions may not be possible or could take weeks or months.”
