Event Details

Please join the Carnegie Mellon University Wilton E. Scott Institute for Energy Innovation for a Distinguished Lecture by Tony Markel, senior engineer in the Energy Systems Cyber-Physical Security Research Group at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory. Markel will discuss energy, transportation and cybersecurity.

Lunch will be available at 11:45 a.m. Registration is free.

Abstract

Our energy systems are transforming and NREL is conducting the critical research supporting integration of technologies to create a more efficient and secure system. In this talk, Markel will provide an introduction to the DOE national lab system and NREL’s roles in particular. Our ability to sense, communicate, control, and interact through connectivity with technologies across the energy landscape is both enabling and a new risk.
 
Markel will specifically dive into the electrification of the transportation sector to see how it is changing and discuss the enabling research underway. He’ll close by highlighting security and resilience challenges that may be revealed as the energy system continues to become more interconnected and intelligent.
