Distributed Energy Resource Cybersecurity Framework Tool Shines in Solar Cybersecurity Assessment

As the world pushes for sustainable energy, the spotlight turns to distributed energy resources (DERs), with solar photovoltaic (PV) systems at the forefront. In the quest for decarbonization, a shining star emerges—the Distributed Energy Resource Cybersecurity Framework (DER-CF).Unveiled at the 2023 IEEE Power and Energy Society’s Innovative Smart Grid Technologies conference, a new paper by National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) researchers sheds light on the importance of securing solar energy.
