A power outage is a break in the mains power supply which can last from milliseconds to minutes or even hours. In recent years the number of power outages recorded within Western Europe has increased. Momentary breaks in the electrical supply are increasing due to more severe and disruptive weather conditions, the switching of substations transformers, grid breakdowns and a rising demand for electricity. Demand for electricity continues to rise as economies decarbonise and move to electric transportation whilst also introducing more power from renewables. This is in addition to an increasing dependence on datacentre services fuelled by Edge and 5G connectivity.
