The agency is particularly interested in proposals that explore the development of a zero-trust architecture in electrical or oil and gas environments. The DOE acknowledges the risk of cyber attacks on energy systems, and aims to find solutions that can protect critical energy infrastructure. With awards of up to $5 million available, the agency is seeking proposals from universities, tribal nations, companies, and others.
