Cyberattacks threaten smart inverters, but scientists have solutions

Smart inverters expand opportunities for more distributed resources on the grid. But the internet-enabled communications that allow smart inverters to work with the grid also open the door for something sinister.

Scientists at Lawrence Berkeley National Lab have been working on solutions to combat cybersecurity threats on smart inverters since 2016. They’ve found some promising solutions to inevitable hacks, but also some serious challenges that come with the growing proliferation of smart inverters.
