Energy Department Seeks Proposals for Infrastructure Security

The energy secretary says the funding is to ensure the nation’s “energy infrastructure can withstand emerging threats.“

The U.S. Department of Energy’s Cybersecurity, Energy Security and Emergency Response will oversee All-Hazards Energy Resilience funding toward research and development. A total of $70 million in funding will be put toward technology that protects against both cyber threats and physical hazards. The department is interested in proposals exploring the creation of a zero-trust architecture within electrical or oil and natural gas environments.

Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm said, “As we build our clean energy future, these investments will help save money in the long run by identifying and developing innovative solutions that ensure our nation’s energy infrastructure can withstand emerging threats and the challenges of a changing world.”
