GMLC is working closely with partners in industry, academia, and across cities and states to deliver on the objectives outlined in DOE’s Grid Modernization Multiyear Program Plan across six broad technical areas.
Cybersecurity and Physical Security
GMLC researchers develop tools and technologies that prevent, detect, and mitigate cyber-attacks on critical energy infrastructure.
Improved sensing and measurements throughout the electric infrastructure, from generation through end use, and at multiple time scales—from microseconds to hours and days—is needed to support advances in system operation and control.
This technical area aims to meet physical and cybersecurity challenges, analyze asset criticality and associated risks, and provide situational awareness and incident support during energy-related emergencies.
