Infrastructure is the term used to describe the interconnected organisational structures that underpin society and enable it to function effectively. In its physical sense, infrastructure generally relates to the assets necessary to facilitate the flow of supplies required by society.
Energy infrastructure encompasses traditional utilities such as gas and oil pipelines, electricity transmission lines, coal trains, as well as technologies such as advanced electrical metering and distribution systems, smart building systems, and power plant control systems.
