The roadmap is primarily focused on large, small, and medium manufacturers and original equipment manufacturers that support large-scale production of technologies.
The document includes a call for the manufacturing sector to facilitate collaboration to ensure the secure deployment of energy-efficient platforms across the industry to bolster global cyber defenses.
“The initiatives detailed in this roadmap will ensure that our protective measures keep pace with advances in automation, digitalization and a range of advanced manufacturing technologies, protecting our domestic manufacturing and our economy,” said Kelly Speakes-Backman, DOE Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary. for energy efficiency and renewable energies.
