Cybersecurity for Transactive Energy Systems (TES)

ABSTRACT – Here’s the summary for the webinar – Transactive energy (TE) will be an important technology enabler that will change today’s utility business models toward the utility of the future. TE will also affect future energy markets, driven by new technologies, such as energy automation, distributed solar photovoltaic, distributed energy storage systems (DESS), smart metering, distributed energy resources (DER), and so one. However, current TE models lack the “trusted transactive layer” needed to implement new energy market dynamics capabilities. In this context, the presentations covered the full gamut of issues pertaining to transactive energy, cybersecurity and distributed ledger technologies.

GLOBECOM 2019 Conference Website

IEEE Global Communications Conference (GLOBECOM) is one of the IEEE Communications Society’s two flagship conferences dedicated to driving innovation in nearly every aspect of communications. Each year, more than 3000 scientific researchers and their management submit proposals for program sessions to be held at the annual conference. After extensive peer review, the best of the proposals are selected for the conference program, which includes technical papers, tutorials, workshops and industry sessions designed specifically to advance technologies, systems and infrastructure that are continuing to reshape the world and provide all users with access to an unprecedented spectrum of high-speed, seamless and cost-effective global telecommunications services.
