NREL's cybersecurity research is strengthening our grid against tomorrow's threats.

Our research in cybersecurity seeks to address today’s most critical energy security challenges—like the exponential increase in grid-connected devices, split incentives for robust cyber defense, and control of the technology supply chains that directly impact grid services.

Whether the research involves cyber threat emulation, novel security technology for complex energy systems, site risk analysis, or the development of new cyber-inclusive standards for renewables, NREL researchers are working at the leading edge of cybersecurity for clean energy technologies and highly distributed energy systems.
