EUropean Risk Assessment and COntingency planning Methodologies for interconnected energy networks

Objective

EURACOM addresses the issue of protection and resilience of energy supply for European interconnected energy networks. Establish link and coherent risk management procedures across energy sectors and EU countries will increase the resilience of energy supply services across the whole infrastructure chain. EURACOM objective is to identify, together with EU Energy Infrastructures operators, an holistic approach (end-to-end energy supply chain: from fuel transport, power generation and transmission) for risk assessment and contingency planning solutions. Use of an agreed taxonomy, network architecture elements /interfaces, and risk management methodology will allow sharing of good practices and experience between operators and dialogue with security technology suppliers in dedicated workshops. By examining characteristic case studies, the project will prompt a joint reflection with industry and authorities. This will allow reliable application to different sectors of the energy supply chain and coherent identification of risk mitigation /management emergency plans for the different level and kind of threats. EURACOM will take into account European guidelines and standards and will cover the full incident response cycle spanning multiple operators in single nations and across national borders especially in case of malicious attacks and systemic failures. Involvement of energy operators / users in the project is ensured by previous cooperation. EURACOM will also be a useful to support EU energy policies for CIP as well as for the work of ESRIF, with a specific support to the Energy Operator Community and a dedicated Energy Forum open to all stakeholders, to identify needed technology evolutions vs threats, in close cooperation between supply and demand side. The holistic infrastructure risk management methodology for energy infrastructures, once validated by the operators, will be the major results of EURACOM and will be promoted in sectoral conferences and publications.
