March 28: FERC and DOE’s Energy Infrastructure Technical Conference

CCO Licensed Image

Next week the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) and Department of Energy (DOE) will co-host a valuable technical conference to discuss the security practices needed to protect energy infrastructure, an important step forward in determining the priorities for energy infrastructure funding.

Currently, threats and risks to the electric infrastructure are not shared among stakeholders in a timely manner or in a useful format – contributing to delayed reaction times and increased cybersecurity risk for the entire industry. This conference is expected to help spur needed dialog between the electric utility industry and the federal and state governments so that both can make better, more informed decisions regarding energy security infrastructure. As FERC Chairman Neil Chatterjee described it, the conference should offer a joint exploration of current threats against energy infrastructure, best practices for mitigation, current incentives for investing in physical and cyber security protections, and current cost recovery practices at both the state and federal level.

If you are available March 28, I strongly encourage you to attend and help government and industry executives understand the importance of the public and private partnership needed to protect our nation’s critical electric infrastructure.

The conference begins at 10 AM on Thursday, March 28 in the Commission Meeting Room at FERC headquarters. It is free and open to the public via webcast or in-person. Register online at:
