DOE emergency response efforts provide clear and consistent communication to deliver situational awareness of energy sector impacts. DOE responders in the field will facilitate subject matter expertise and assist with expedited waivers and special permits that aid industry restoration efforts. We do so in close communication with our Federal partners, including FEMA, the Departments of Homeland Security, Transportation, Defense, Interior, and the Environmental Protection Agency, as well as state agencies and energy companies affected by the storm.

DOE will be issuing situation reports to provide details on the storm’s impact, and the energy industry recovery and restoration activities being undertaken.
