Methods and Measures to Enhance Resilience against Electrical Power Outage in Urban Vital Societal Functions (MEREPUV)

Funded by the EU commission, the MEREPUV project (2018-2020) had partners from three countries and at three different levels; National, regional and municipal.

  • Norway: The Directorate for Civil Protection (DSB), City of Oslo, Bergen and Stavanger
  • Netherlands: Safety Region South – Holland South, City of Dordrecht
  • Latvia: State Fire and Rescue Service, City of Valmiera

The aim of the project has been to make cities more resilient to disruptions in power supply by improving knowledge of cities` role in protecting their vital societal functions from such disruptions, and by identifying efficient measures available at the local level for protecting citizens against severe consequences of power outage.

As a part of the project, the participating cities carried out assessments of how electrical power outage will affect other vital societal functions:

• Electronic communication systems (City of Stavanger)
• Rescue services (City of Oslo)
• Health services (Cities of Bergen, Dordrecht and Valmiera).

The following documents are results of the project:
