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.

Researchers are leveraging NREL's power and communication systems emulation and cybersecurity capabilities to evaluate the potential security impacts of connecting EVs, EV charging stations, and other devices to the electric grid.
