In 1994, Major Thomas Griffith of the United States Air Force defended his thesis entitled “Strategic Strikes on National Power Systems”, in which he examined the effectiveness of strikes on power grids to achieve military and political goals.



In conclusion, Griffith advised the Pentagon not to rely on the successes achieved as a result of the destruction of the enemy’s energy infrastructure:
due to the unachievability of the political goals of the war in this way, since military structures will always remain supplied with electricity, and the civilian population does not change power due to power outages;


The strikes themselves are seldom entirely successful. In order for them to completely deprive the enemy’s country of electrical energy, its entire energy system must be concentrated in one place and must not have a reserve or external assistance;


Such strikes will complicate the post-war recovery of the enemy country and will necessarily have a negative attitude of the international community.
