Come hear UL experts present:
Cybersecurity for Wind and Solar Projects: Protecting Generation Assets and the Grid
Bruce Bailey, Senior Advisor, Energy & Power Technologies
Session Number: 6C3
Wednesday, December 05, 2018: 1:00 PM - 2:30 PM
With the increasing global demand for renewables comes the need for high levels of energy reliability and security. The electric grid with its increasingly digital and interactive attributes is enabling the economy’s transition to renewables. The connectivity of things is encouraging “smart” approaches to spark the proliferation of interconnected systems. As a recognized critical infrastructure asset, the
grid requires robust physical and operational measures to ensure its reliability and security. This includes protection against cyber attacks.
Like the grid, the power and information infrastructures of wind and solar projects, including their control centers, are vulnerable to outages and revenue losses, data theft, physical damage, and other risks resulting from cyber attacks. Consequently they need to adopt and maintain an appropriate security culture that recognizes the sophistication of threats, including their ability to rapidly adapt to countermeasures.
UL works with many of the world's most experienced renewable project developers, owners, investors and financiers, manufacturers, and grid operators. As a trusted advisor we help mitigate risk and navigate complexity throughout the renewable energy project lifecycle and across the value chain.
