Reducing Current and Future Risks to Energy Security

Research output: NRELFact Sheet


As global communities transition to clean energy technologies, the threat landscape for energy security is more complex than ever before. While broad adoption of clean energy technologies has progressed across the world, the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) has been researching how to reduce risks and the value renewable energy technologies bring to improved energy security, today and decades into the future. Continuing adoption of technologies to meet clean energy and climate mitigation goals requires consideration of energy security, making NREL's risk reduction and mitigation research increasingly important. NREL's growing strategic energy security (SES) portfolio focuses on securing clean energy systems against disruptive events by informing policies, investment, and design through decision support, analysis, modeling and simulation, technology development, and fundamental science and research. The portfolio covers the threat-to-consequence arc of potential disruptions within resource extraction, manufacturing, supply chains, affordability, energy justice, and energy portfolio planning.
