Cyber-Energy Emulation Platform

NREL's cyber-energy emulation platform allows researchers to emulate the cyber-physical performance of devices and networks under realistic threat scenarios with real hardware-in-the-loop.

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.
