Event description

Description

Multiple technologies and infrastructures are transforming the energy grid. While previously a large-player dominated electrical system, the energy grid now encompasses decentralized as well as centralized energy producers who rely on carbon and non-carbon energy sources. New technologies and the need for agility leads to fragmentation among producers, consumers, and distributors using the grid. As more doors open for partnerships, so opportunities multiply for predators to threaten what is an interconnected, fragmented, and rapidly changing grid.

Join GMU’s Center for Energy Science and Policy (CESP) for a three-panel discussion:

1) Resiliency

2) Cyber and Grid Security: Digitalization and Decentralization of the Grid

3) The Intersection of Cyber and Physical Security

"Policy makers should develop a better understanding of opportunities and challenges that arise from increasing digitalization in the energy sector. Digitalization and the energy sector are increasingly converging, bringing new prospects as well as risks. Better data and more rigorous analysis are needed to ensure that digitalization and the changing energy landscape work together in the most sensible and cost-effective manner." IEA Energy Technology Perspectives (2017)
