As part of its ongoing effort regarding the formation of smart grid policy, the Department of Energy issued a Request for Information in September of 2010 on the topic of “Addressing Policy and Logistical Challenges to Smart Grid Implementation.” The purpose was to solicit comments from interested stakeholders on policy and logistical challenges that confront smart grid implementation, and recommendations on how to best overcome those challenges.
Despite all of ISER’s efforts to promote reliability and resiliency in the energy sector, domestic and global events will occur that will disrupt the sector and ISER must always be prepared to respond. In the face of both manmade and natural disasters, ISER applies cutting edge technical solutions and emergency management expertise to help overcome challenges inherent in quickly restoring an incredibly complex U.S.
Collaborative effort will develop a risk management process guideline
WASHINGTON, DC - The Department of Energy is launching an initiative to enhance cyber security on the electric grid. The initiative, led by the Department’s Office of Electricity Delivery and Energy Reliability (OE), the National Institute of Standards and Technology, and the North American Electric Reliability Corporation, will be an open collaboration with representatives from across the public and private sectors to develop a cyber security risk management process guideline for the electric sector.
