Trump administration issues Executive Order imposing broad new restrictions on foreign supply of equipment for the U.S. bulk-power system

On 1 May 2020 President Trump issued an "Executive Order on Securing the United States Bulk-Power System" (the Bulk-Power System EO), which establishes a framework for imposing broad new restrictions on the acquisition, importation, transfer, or installation of bulk-power system equipment from foreign adversaries. While certain key terms and criteria are undefined in the Bulk-Power System EO, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has been tasked with implementing the Bulk-Power System EO and will publish draft regulations in the coming months. The Bulk-Power System EO bears similarities to the 2019 Executive Order on "Securing the Information and Communication Technology and Services Supply Chain" (the ICTS EO), which imposed similar restrictions on the acquisition, importation, transfer, or installation of foreign-supplied information technology and telecommunications equipment.
