DOE Invests in Smart Grid Cyber Security

The United States Department of Energy will invest more than $30 million for 10 projects working to improve cyber security for the nation’s electric grid.  U.S. Energy Secretary Steven Chu says the investment is part of the Administration’s commitment to building a secure and reliable electricity system. “These awards help us make a significant leap forward to strengthen the security and reliability of the nation’s electric grid, in a climate of increasingly sophisticated cyber attacks. The development of technologies that can provide defense-in-depth cyber-security solutions, and increased insight from private-public collaborations, will allow us to better protect the nation’s energy delivery systems that keep our lights on and the power flowing.”
