Embedded Intelligence and Cybersecurity for Energy Systems

Invent innovative digital technologies to improve energy systems

 

The integration of smart capabilities into energy systems has been greatly facilitated by the massive incorporation of ICTs. However, efforts to make energy systems smart must be intensified and supported. Additionally, cybersecurity issues must be addressed.

 

 

Tenerrdis’ 2022 objectives

The cluster’s goal is to stay at the leading edge of advances in energy system optimization by leveraging innovative digital solutions.

 

key challenges addressed by tenerrdis

The main challenges to incorporating smart capabilities into energy systems are:

RESEARCH GAINING TRACTION

These issues are being addressed by the Ancre and Allistene (Alliance numérique) working groups, for example, as well as by clusters like ECC4IU (Greater Lyon), which bring together regional stakeholders, research organizations (French Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission, Grenoble Institute of Technology), and industrial companies (Thales, Siemens, Veolia). There are also groups working on standards specific to security for energy systems (ISO 27001, ISO 62443, ISO 62351, IEC61850). The National Council for Industry’s working groups on New Energy Systems has identified cybersecurity as a cross-sector topic.

project focus

To date, several projects have been completed or are in progress; Opsine2 resulted in the release of the CACTUS software suite.
