Never has the danger of a changing climate been as pressing as it is today. Alongside the expansion in global energy demand, a drive toward renewable and clean energies is gaining momentum. These advanced generation sources are affecting a traditional grid system that has insufficient capability of handling these new technologies and is replacing it with a smarter grid.
The shift away from a legacy grid comes with both widespread adoption of new devices and incorporation of variable, bi-directional power flow. All this restructuring of the energy landscape offers an interconnected network of communication that not only opens new ways of operating, but also introduces new avenues for cyber threats.
