As part of the Obama Administration’s commitment to protecting America’s energy critical infrastructure, the Department of Energy’s Office of Electricity Delivery and Energy Reliability announced awards totaling up to $34 million, subject to appropriations, for the development of next generation technologies and tools to strengthen protection of the nation’s electric grid and oil and gas infrastructure from cyber attack. The announcement was made on August 15, 2016.  

The twelve projects will enhance the reliability and resilience of the nation’s energy critical infrastructure through innovative, scalable, and cost-effective research, development and demonstration of cybersecurity solutions. These technologies are expected to have broad applicability to the U.S. energy delivery sector by meeting the needs of the energy sector in a cost-effective manner with a clear path for acceptance by asset owners and operators and through commercialization by solution providers.
