Data and Tools

NREL develops data, tools, platforms, and environments for the assessment, improvement, and planning of cybersecurity and resilience initiatives.

Researchers visualize a real-time cyberattack projected onto wall-size screens.

NREL Cyber Range

NREL’s cyber range provides the ability to virtualize, emulate, and visualize energy systems with the fidelity needed to represent future energy and telecommunication systems–from individual devices to regional grids.

Distributed Energy Resource Cybersecurity Framework

The Distributed Energy Resource Cybersecurity Framework is an in-depth tool for organizations with distributed energy resources to assess and improve their cybersecurity posture.

Advanced Research on Integrated Energy Systems

Combining assets at NREL's Energy Systems Integration Facility, Flatirons Campus, and a virtual emulation environment, the Advanced Research on Integrated Energy Systems research platform can simulate and detect attacks on communications and control systems that are still evolving to reduce overall vulnerabilities in energy systems.

Renewable Energy Integration and Optimization

The Renewable Energy Integration and Optimization tool helps partners determine the value of resilience and develop pathways to cost-effectively develop advanced, resilient microgrid systems.
