Secure smart grids improve sustainability, efficiency and reduce threats
Today’s highly successful smart grids have become comprehensive IoT networks with millions of connected meters that share massive real time data about people, businesses and energy consumption. The valuable insight they provide enables consumers to save on energy bills and utilities and energy players to better balance supply and demand. It is also crucial information to help integrate renewable energy sources, helping to improve sustainability. As the marketplace and number of connections continues to expand by an estimated 30% each year1, so does the cyberattack surface. The motivations for hacking this critical infrastructure are high and diverse: energy consumption fraud, insight into households’ activity and absence, grid instability, pressure on governments, ID theft. Digital security is paramount to an efficient grid´s success.
