The theme for this year's conference is "Embracing the Grid of the Future". As an integrated, more renewable based, communication driven, dynamic power system emerges, it's imperative that utilities are prepared at all levels for this transformation. Areas of focus include: power quality; distribution grid modernization and resiliency; integration of distributed energy resources; and information and communications technology.

Cyber Security

The evolving electricity sector is increasingly dependent on information technology and telecommunications infrastructure that ensures the reliability of the electric grid, making cyber/physical security and data privacy a critical priority for utilities. Cyber security measures must be designed and implemented to protect the grid from attacks by terrorists and hackers, while technology also strengthens the grid’s resilience against natural disasters and inadvertent threats such as equipment failures and user errors.

Substantive research can address emerging threats to an interconnected electric system through cross-sector collaborative studies on cyber security standards, business processes, and technologies that protect the grid. EPRI undertakes collaborative research in the industry to develop these grid technologies, best practices, and controls on data privacy.
