The Office of Cybersecurity, Energy Security, and Emergency Response (CESER) is leading a State Energy Risk Assessment Initiative to help States better understand risks to their energy infrastructure so they can be better prepared to make informed decisions about their investments, resilience and hardening strategies, and asset management. The Initiative is a collaborative effort with the National Association of State Energy Officials (NASEO), the National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners (NARUC), the National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL), and the National Governors Association (NGA).
As part of this Initiative, CESER has developed a series of State and Regional Energy Risk Profiles that examine the relative magnitude of risks at a regional and State level highlighting energy infrastructure trends and impacts. The profiles present both natural and man-made hazards with the potential to cause disruption of the electric, petroleum, and natural gas infrastructures.
In addition, CESER has produced an Energy Risk Resource Library that provides information on risk and the importance of conducting energy risk assessments. The site is a library of information allowing users to explore risk resources and policy guidance.
