“The time for strengthening and securing our critical energy infrastructure is now,” said Sen. Cantwell. “It is imperative we continue to invest in cybersecurity to develop technologies that will make our entire economy safer and more reliable.”

The DOE awarded a total of $50 Million to improve the resilience and security of the Nation’s critical energy infrastructure. The PNNL grants are part of the larger DOE investment in National Laboratories to support early stage research and development of next-generation tools and technologies to further improve the resilience of the Nation’s critical energy infrastructure, including the electric grid and oil and natural gas infrastructure.


Energy and Natural Resources Committee

Since its creation, the Committee on Energy and Natural Resources and its predecessors have considered, reported, and overseen some of the most important legislation ever enacted by the United States Congress.

This far-reaching legislative activity can be described in the following major areas: energy resources and development, including regulation, conservation, strategic petroleum reserves and appliance standards; nuclear energy; Indian affairs; public lands and their renewable resources; surface mining, Federal coal, oil, and gas, other mineral leasing; territories and insular possessions; and water resources.
