DOE Invests Funds on Energy Cybersecurity RD&D Effort

The Department of Energy has invested a $25 million funding opportunity announcement to finance a new effort aiming to strengthen cybersecurity capacities in the energy sector.

The DOE said Monday its Office of Electricity Delivery and Energy Reliability’s Cybersecurity for Energy Delivery Systems program seeks to push research, development and demonstration that may be applied to improve cyber resiliency of energy systems.

“Energy cybersecurity is a national priority that demands the next wave of advanced technologies to create more secure and resilient systems needed for America’s future prosperity, vitality and energy independence,” said Rick Perry, secretary of energy.

Projects under the program will revolve around the areas of cyber-resilient architecture redesign; cybersecurity for the electric and oil and natural gas environment; communications; cloud-based technologies; and cybersecurity enhancement in the energy sector.

Interested applicants have up to June 18, 2018 to submit proposals that must include demonstrations and transition method suggestions on the subject technologies.
