IMC Study: Awareness of Blackout Risk

According to a study by IMC University of Applied Sciences Krems, 9 out of 10 respondents are of the opinion that a blackout, i.e. a prolonged, large-scale power failure, is a serious issue. In the view of two thirds, the risk of a blackout has increased in recent years. Nevertheless, there is definitely room for improvement as far as preparations for this emergency are concerned.
