Uncovering the hidden vulnerabilities of virtual power plants

Virtual power plants represent a transformative approach to energy management, harnessing diverse energy resources to meet the demands of modern power grids.

However, because VPPs rely on interconnected digital systems and they are susceptible to a range of unique and often hidden cybersecurity threats, including:

  • Software vulnerabilities. Hackers can exploit weaknesses in VPP software to gain unauthorized access or disrupt operations
  • Untrusted devices. Devices connected to VPPs can be compromised, leading to potential breaches or system failures
  • Data breaches. Sensitive data handled by VPPs, such as energy consumption patterns, is a target for cybercriminals

Understand how to mitigate these risks by learning how to deploy practical measures, such as robust network segmentation, encryption, and access control.
