Microgrid Cybersecurity: Protecting and Building the Grid of the Future

Download the new report from Microgrid Knowledge, courtesy of S&C Electric Co., that explores the threat of cyber attacks and why microgrid cybersecurity is crucial to the grid of the future. Microgrids are increasingly part of that recovery plan because they can provide an electrified oasis during a power outage.

Security Challenges and best practices in the IoT Environment

There are numerous challenges and issues concerning the security of the Internet of Things. We are witnesses to rapid technological developments in the area. We have not so far witnessed equally responsive efforts in terms of regulation, certification or standardization. Consumer Internet of Things devices are usually low-cost, with security being seen not as a necessity but as an added-value service by many developers and manufacturers alike. It is thus a market-driven ecosystem, where security and safety are not seen as the main drivers.

Renewable Energy for Industry From green energy to green materials and fuels

The rapid fall in cost of solar and wind power technologies opens a new range of possibilities to decarbonise the global economy and cut carbon emissions from industry. Besides direct renewable heat and electrification, hydrogen-rich chemicals that are easy to store and transport could serve as feedstock, process agents and fuels. They could be produced in areas with abundant and cheap resources, and shipped to consuming centers, opening the prospects to a new kind of international energy trade.
This Insights Paper examines emerging technology options, and reviews national and international policies that could foster their development and their deployment.

Solar PV Jobs & Value Added in Europe

This study also assesses the impacts of the anti-dumping measures (minimum import prices and annual import quotas) set by the European Commission on the import of solar
modules and cells. It does so by modelling and comparing an alternative scenario (without measures) to the baseline scenario (with measures) for 2 countries (Germany and Italy).

Towards sustainable and integrated European energy networks

The report by the Expert Group highlights that interconnectors must help exploit the benefits of market integration by enabling better prices for customers, help meet electricity demand on national markets, and contribute to the best use of renewable electricity across Europe. In this regard, the Expert Group recommends specific thresholds for interconnection levels as measured in relation to the peak consumption and installed renewables production in each Member State. Furthermore, the Expert group recommends to use €2/MWh of yearly average price difference between relevant countries or regions as the indicative threshold for considering the development additional interconnectors.
