Advances in energy and information technologies are transforming the way EVs generate, store, manage, and use energy. This also increases the potential consequences of cyber-attacks.

Leveraging NREL's power and communication systems emulation capabilities, researchers are exploring energy security and cybersecurity technology innovations and evaluating the potential security impacts of connecting EVs, EV charging stations, and other devices to the electric grid.
