Abstract: The European Programme on Critical Infrastructure Protection (EPCIP) is in search for a methodology to analyse economic consequences of critical infrastructure failure. A combined systems engineering and Inoperability Input-Output model (SE-IIM) is applied to analyse the economic impact of a failure in the electricity network on a system of critical infrastructure (CI) industries in four regions in Italy. The study concludes that the model can give a rough estimation of infrastructure failure effects and allows for a holistic approach: it is able to focus on a subsystem of CI industries but can also capture the whole economy of a geographic entity.
