Emerging Trends Series: Cybersecurity & the 21st Century Electricity System
While not new, cybersecurity is an evolving threat to energy security, reliability and the shift to a 21st century electricity system. As the electricity sector has evolved in recent decades, both the influx of distributed energy resources on the grid and recent attacks on electric grids around the world (e.g., Ukraine in 2015) this expanding threat is more relevant than ever.
How can energy innovation help address this threat, how can clean energy businesses manage the risk of a cyber attack to the grid, and how does public policy play a role in the effort to enhance the cybersecurity of a 21st century grid.
