Interdependencies of coupled heterogeneous infrastructures: the case of ICT and Energy

Abstract : Modern energy infrastructures and Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) are strongly coupled and as such heavily depend on each other. These infrastructures are essential for the proper functioning of our society and economies. Indeed, it is hard to imagine our present society without the services offered by these infrastructures. In addition, any failure of these infrastructures may cause significant economical losses. They are "critical infrastructures". Although, the energy and ICT infrastructures are heterogeneous in nature (different features, dynamics and communities), they need to be addressed in an integrated matter in the perspective of global infrastructures security. However, their interdependencies are not well known and significant efforts need to be dedicated for better understanding criticalities, vulnerabilities and cascading effects characterizing these strongly coupled heterogeneous infrastructures.
