Faculty in the Center for Renewable Energy actively work on cyber security for energy applications. They research and support the analysis of architectures and protocols for ultra-high-speed networks, grid and cloud networks, smart grid modeling, monitoring, forecasting, cyber-physical security. In particular with Nuclear energy, faculty provide support to IAEA and U.S. Department of State on threat assessment of cyber and physical security vulnerability to nuclear and radiological material and facilities.
