RESILIENT POWER GRID WITH SELF-REPAIR MECHANISMS
Funded by the EU (H2020 SU-DS04-2018-2020), ELECTRON is an international investigation project that aims to offer an Electrical Power and Energy System (EPES) next-generation platform, capable of developing the energy systems resilience against cyber and privacy attacks and data breaches.
This project aims to:
- Create components to ensure greater resilience of energy systems against cyber-attacks.
- Provide a modern collaborative risk and certification framework, involving different stakeholders in the energy sector value chain in line with safety.
- Provide a next-generation IT security and protection framework, involving a decentralized and federated learning-based SIEM and a powerful IDPS.
- Design and implement prevention and mitigation plans based on nano-networks to protect the network.
- Design augmented and virtual reality-based training plans to enhance staff cybersecurity training.
- Comply with European policies and certification requirements for energy and power systems.
Within the consortium, Isotrol will provide its expertise to the work related to cybersecurity applied to SCADA and the energy management point of view, as well as the development of tools for the proactive response to threats and cyberattacks, concentrating its activities in the development and demonstration of this technology in relevant environments from renewable plants. It will work on the application of all cybersecurity improvements achieved as a result of the execution of the project to its systems, improving the security of these with the latest advances in the state of the art.
International consortium formed by 34 companies, research centers and universities from countries such as Greece, France, Spain, Sweden, Ukraine, Norway, the Netherlands, Cyprus, Italy, Luxembourg, Israel and Romania.
Execution period: 2021 – 2024
This project has received funding from the EU Research and Innovation program, Horizon 2020, under the grant agreement number 101021936.
