The critical infrastructure that our nation’s most significant sectors depend on is constantly evolving. The industrial internet of things (IIoT) is transforming the power grid, enabling the enhancement of reliability, resilience, and decarbonization. In addition to technology insertion, we must emphasize the need for continuous public-private partnerships. As the threat landscape exponentially grows, mitigating risk to advanced threats requires constant due diligence and collaborative information sharing. As a nation, we must accelerate efforts to qualify and quantify cyber-physical risk in the age of digital, distributed, and renewable energy systems.

Please join Pete Tseronis, founder and chief executive officer of Dots and Bridges and the former chief technology officer at the U.S. Department of Energy, as he convenes a critical conversation hosted by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL). This virtual dialogue will explore the complexity of our rapidly transforming critical infrastructure as we strive to achieve a clean energy economy.
