File this one under the growing awareness around the vulnerabilities of a completely digitized electric grid. I wrote last week about a bill introduced in the Senate that would provide federal funds to utilities who fortify their grid systems against cyberthreats. This latest bill introduced in the House of Representatives would create a research program to secure the country's electric grids against cyber-attacks and natural disasters, and aim to create quicker responses when such threats are realized. Count on grid security to be a focal point in energy policy discussions as we head further into a digitized future.
