Minneapolis, Minnesota (PRWEB) February 09, 2015
While end-use devices — such as solar and other renewable generation sources, water heaters, and HVAC systems — have the potential to increase the value of power grid operations, it has been difficult to harness the power of these devices due to lack of efficient, affordable, and secure communication paths.
A new solution brief from OATI, Securing the Edge of the Grid: Bringing Control Center Level Security to End-Use Devices, explains how utilities can achieve the potential economic and reliability benefits of implementing a closed-loop security system for grid-edge devices.
“We are very excited to release this report,” says Erik Amudson, Chief Technology Officer of Advanced Systems Design, “To ensure the reliability of the power grid, Utilities need to know how to secure these devices.”
