 The Office of Cybersecurity, Energy Security, and Emergency Response (CESER) is issuing this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA). Awards made under this FOA will use funds appropriated by the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA), more commonly known as the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL). Section 40125(b) of the BIL will invest appropriations of $250 million over a 5-year period from FY 2022 through 2026 to develop advanced cybersecurity applications and technologies for the energy sector through several research, development, and demonstration (RD&D) activities aligned with the 40125(b) provision. This FOA provides approximately $30 million in federal funding for RD&D projects to advance cybersecurity tools and technologies specifically designed to reduce cyber risks to renewable energy delivery infrastructure. The activities to be funded under this FOA support BIL Section 40125(b) to lead to next generation tools and technologies not available today that will become widely adopted throughout the energy sector to reduce a cyber incident disruption to energy delivery.
