Electricity: 100% Blue
Electricity is one of the key sectors which needs to be bug-free because so many other sectors depend upon it.
Independent assessments were carried out for the Office of Gas and Electricity Markets by PB Power. According to a report in October, the electricity industry is now ready for the millennium date change.
The four main processes assessed were generation, transmission, distribution and supply 90%.
Nuclear power was assessed 100% Blue.
In the coal industry, which helps provide electrical power, independent assessment found it to be 95% Blue and 5% Amber.
The Action 2000 traffic light codes:
Blue: The assessment has not identified any risks of material disruption to the infrastructure process.
Amber: The assessment indicates that there is some risk of material disruption to infrastructure processes, but that there is an agreed containment plan to rectify shortcomings.
Red: The assessment indicates that there is a severe risk of material disruption to infrastructure processes and that timely rectification might not be possible.
