Statement on DOE Order

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Department of Energy (DOE) prohibition order issued today is an important next step to further protect defense critical electric infrastructure from persistent threats posed by sophisticated nation-states. NERC and the Electricity Information Sharing and Analysis Center continue to take numerous proactive initiatives to address supply chain cyber security risk, including issuing alerts to determine the amount of foreign-manufactured equipment installed on the grid, conducting risk assessments, and sharing other pertinent information with industry. NERC will continue to work with industry, DOE, and other government partners across North America to protect grid security.
