Innovation and disruption often play out at the boundary, or edge, of established and well-understood industries. The electric power grid is no exception. The grid edge includes cyber-physical devices, solutions, and business models that are advancing grid modernization and transitioning it toward a more decentralized, distributed, and transactive electric grid. In this panel discussion, hear stories of challenge and progress in securing grid edge devices, and the cybersecurity solutions available today and in the near-future that can help identify anomalies and potential threats to a modern grid.

Pete Tseronis, current chairman of the Utility SuperCluster, will moderate a discussion on cybersecurity for distributed energy resources that will feature different perspectives, opinions, and solutions.
