Energy Sector
Department of Energy

Presidential Policy Directive 21 identifies the Energy Sector as uniquely critical because it provides an “enabling function” across all critical infrastructure sectors.  More than 80 percent of the country’s energy infrastructure is owned by the private sector, supplying fuels to the transportation industry, electricity to households and businesses, and other sources of energy that are integral to growth and production across the nation. The Energy Sector-Specific Plan details how the National Infrastructure Protection Plan risk management framework is implemented.

The Energy Sector is reliant upon HIFLD data. Refer to the “Energy” subcategory in the HIFLD data catalog at:
