Visible to the public "Strengthening the Cybersecurity of the Grid"Conflict Detection Enabled

The enhanced connectivity that accompanies the continued modernization of the U.S. electricity grid ignites concerns as advancements in computing and communications technologies for grid operators and consumers are expected to increase the possibility of cyber intrusions. Therefore, a new project has been funded by the Department of Energy (DOE) to develop tools in the detection and defense against certain forms of cyberattacks targeted toward the grid. The project is lead by Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) and focuses on the use of solar inverters to counter cyberattacks. This article further discusses the focus and support behind this project, the modernization of the U.S. electricity grid and its affect on cybersecurity, as well as two other projects in relation to the resiliency of the grid.
