Stronger Energy Grid
Physical and Cyber Security
Our daily activities, economic development and national security all depend on reliable energy and protected infrastructure. A transformed power grid will have new, robust design standards that can withstand extreme events, as well as secure networks that protect a digital grid.
A hardened grid will include:
- New standards for physical protection of critical infrastructure
- Secure digital networks that are ready for new and emerging technologies
- More grid capacity and communications infrastructure to support a self-healing grid
- Improved capability to intervene and prevent outages before they occur
