H.R.3050 – Enhancing State Energy Security Planning and Emergency Preparedness Act of 2017


The bill would “amend the Energy Policy and Conservation Act to provide Federal financial assistance to States to implement, review, and revise State energy security plans, and for other purposes.”

To that end the bill requires Federal financial assistance made available to a State to be used for the implementation, review, and revision of a State energy security plan that assesses the State’s existing circumstances and proposes methods to strengthen the ability of the State to secure the energy infrastructure of the State against all physical and cybersecurity threats; mitigate the risk of energy supply disruptions to the State and enhance the response to, and recovery from, energy disruptions; and ensure the State has a reliable, secure, and resilient energy infrastructure.

A State energy security plan shall

“(1) address all fuels, including petroleum products, other liquid fuels, coal, electricity, and natural gas, as well as regulated and unregulated energy providers;

“(2) provide a State energy profile, including an assessment of energy production, distribution, and end-use;

“(3) address potential hazards to each energy sector or system, including physical threats and cybersecurity threats;

“(4) provide a risk assessment of energy infrastructure and cross-sector interdependencies;

“(5) provide a risk mitigation approach to enhance reliability and end-use resilience; and

“(6) address multi-State and regional coordination planning and response.
