[INL] Cybersecurity Guide for Distributed Wind

Cybersecurity Guide for Distributed Wind August 2021 **EnerNex contributed to this report with Idaho National Laboratory (INL)** Distributed wind sits at the intersection of grid-connected, off-grid, and behind-the-meter cyber-physical electric energy systems. The physical properties and communications requirements for distributed wind systems mean that there are unique cybersecurity considerations, but there is little to no existing guidance on b...

[INL] Resilience Framework for Electric Energy Delivery Systems

[INL] Resilience Framework for Electric Energy Delivery Systems
Resilience Framework for Electric Energy Delivery Systems July 2021 EnerNex co-authored this report with Idaho National Laboratory (INL) introducing a framework to enable more thoughtful and deliberate consideration of resilience as it relates to electrical energy delivery systems (EEDS), with specific application to distributed wind systems. The framework outlines three tiers of resilience which enable stakeholders to assess and improve their syste...

[IEEE Smart Grid Newsletter] Global Experiences in Smart Metering – Tactical Loss Reduction in Developing Countries

[IEEE Smart Grid Newsletter] Global Experiences in Smart Metering – Tactical Loss Reduction in Developing Countries
Global Experiences in Smart Metering - Tactical Loss Reduction in Developing Countries Published via the IEEE Smart Grid Newsletter - June 2021 Written by Aaron F. Snyder, Vadim Zheglov, and Michele Pastore In the developing world, there is a wave of smart grid technology implementations driven by the desire to reduce “commercial” losses (another term for “non-technical” losses, or those not directly related to the power system infrastructure). Qu...

[E&E News] Report: Create DOE transmission agency to fight climate threat

[E&E News] Report: Create DOE transmission agency to fight climate threat
Report: Create DOE transmission agency to fight climate threat E&E News   A massive, drought-stoked wildfire in southern Oregon has sharply reduced power line deliveries to California from the Pacific Northwest’s hydro dams, adding to the debate about future strategies to fortify the nation’s high-voltage power network. The potential grid vulnerabilities came into focus last Thursday, when smoke from the Oregon blaze, acting as an electr...
