Securing Distributed Energy Resources

Cybersecurity guidance to help energy companies protect IIoT data integrity and communications

Distribution grid operators must protect the digital communication, data, and control of cyber-physical grid-edge devices. The NCCoE collaborated with stakeholders in the electricity sector, the University of Maryland, and cybersecurity technology vendors to build a laboratory environment that represents a distribution utility interconnected with a campus distributed energy resource (DER) microgrid. Using this environment, we explored how information exchanges between commercial- and utility-scale DERs and the electric distribution grid can be monitored, trusted, and protected.
