Mitigate the effects of electrical power outages on NS/EP telecommunications functions and facilities Support response, repair and priority restoration of electric service to critical NS/EP telecommunications facilities and providers in any occurrence, or threat thereof, whether natural, or caused by man, in war or in peace

5 – Energy Task Force formed to mitigate the effects of electric power outages NSTAC approved Energy Task Force recommendations to assign electric power restoration priorities to NS/EP telecommunications 1991 – TESP was approved as a joint program between DOE and NCS 1993 – DOE began implementing TESP 1996 – NCS created database matching utilities with critical telecommunications facilities 2004 – TESP revived by the NCS History

6 6 Planned Highlights of TESP 2005 Encourages telecommunications facilities to communicate directly with the power industry Establishes relationship during outage (wireline, wireless, or Internet) and 24x7 POC/telephone number Calls for reviews of existing electric utility priority restoration plans to include those NS/EP telecommunications facilities Calls for telecommunications facilities to identify their most critical telecommunications assets for priority restoration of electrical power Evokes Telecom ISAC and EISAC involvement as needed

7 7 Next Steps Incorporate changes received from members of the Telecom ISAC Meet with ESISAC to gain support Formal coordination from NERC, FERC, DOE, NCS Continue coordination of information between telecommunications providers and electric utilities Increase TESP awareness and participation Identify problems
