 Obiettivo del progetto (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.'

Introduzione (Teaser)

An EU consortium developed a unified framework to minimise threats to energy security, fundamental to existence in modern society. The methodology incorporates risk sharing across energy sectors and EU countries.

Descrizione progetto (Article)

Numerous energy sectors and sources are now being exploited, from traditional fossil fuels and nuclear energy to alternative forms such as solar and wind. The European Organisation for Security (EOS) joined forces with European Critical Energy Infrastructures operators to develop a comprehensive and unified approach to assess and manage risk associated with the end-to-end energy supply chain.

With EU funding of the project 'European risk assessment and contingency planning methodologies for interconnected energy networks' (EURACOM), scientists provided a generic framework for hazard identification, including risk assessment (RA) and contingency planning (CP) management. EURACOM's framework can be applied within specific energy sectors yet emphasises interconnections of energy networks, CP interoperability and risk sharing to increase the security and resilience of Europe's energy supply across energy sectors and EU countries.

Another important objective of the project was to promote dialogue among European stakeholders from different countries and all along the energy chain to support development of common European policies. Scientists launched a web platform for discussion and decision making that is expected to enhance the continuity and effectiveness of CP measures throughout the EU. A series of workshops was a key component of EURACOM and supported the validation of the proposed RA and CP methodologies.

EURACOM has provided recommendations for European policies promoting energy security and reliability along the entire supply chain. It also delivered a generic methodology for RA and CP that facilitates consideration of interconnected and varied energy networks. Implementation of suggestions and procedures could have an important impact on the development of more secure networks and more effective emergency plans, particularly relevant in light of reported dramatic increases in the number of cyber attacks on the energy sector.
