Executive Order 13920: Securing the US Bulk-Power System
May 6, 2021 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM EST
In May 2020, former President Donald Trump issued Executive Order 13920 which blocked the installation of bulk-power system (BPS) electric equipment that was designed, developed, manufactured or supplied by foreign adversaries of the United States.
While the EO was initially suspended once President Biden took office, on April 20, the Department of Energy reinstated EO 13920 and announced a new request for information (RFI), “ensuring the continued security of the United States critical electric infrastructure.” The RFI is part of a larger effort, including the recent “America’s Supply Chains” EO 14017, to develop a strengthened and effective strategy to address the security of the U.S. energy sector.
Attend this webinar to learn more about EO 13920 and EO 14017 and their potential implications for the electric sector.
