Energy Security Defined

The protection of sovereign energy resources, products, by-products, and commodity supply and conveyance lines from source to distribution point and, the means to safeguard storage facilities and independence of sovereign prices resulting from non-sovereign entities. Production sources and distribution channels must be capable of withstanding threats from all hazards, have redundancy, and should consider sustainability through policy and backup measures. Security requires resilient systems with the capacity to supply readily available energy in sufficient volumes with guaranteed access, affordability, and time foreknowledge of needed distribution to all consumer levels, which has significant importance for homeland security, national security, and natural resources managers.
