US seeks to protect solar arrays against cyber attacks

16 Oct The USA’s Department of Energy has allocated US$46m (£35m) for research projects aimed at protecting solar generation schemes against cyber and physical threats.

The aim is to develop solutions that provide grid operators with awareness and mitigation strategies to safeguard against cyber and physical threats. These projects will develop and validate control strategies, real-time system monitoring, communications and other technologies to make solar power at the bulk power and distribution levels more resilient.

Approximately, 10 projects, ranging from US$2m to US$10m in size, will be funded over three years.
