Energy Security

Access to reliable and affordable energy is important to national security. Some energy resources, such as oil, are not evenly distributed across the world. Energy supplies can also be disrupted by intentional or unintentional break-downs in the infrastructure required to produce or distribute energy. SRI research expands the mix of economically viable energy resources and protects energy infrastructure.
