rEsilient and seLf-healed EleCTRical pOwer Nanogrid
ELECTRON is EU H2020 SU-DS04-2018-2020 funded research project that aims at delivering a new-generation EPES platform, capable of empowering the resilience of energy systems against cyber, privacy, and data attacks

Main Pillars

Risk assesment and
certification

Federated Intrusion and Anomaly Detection

Failure mitigation and energy restoration

Post Quantum Cryptography in the Electrical Grid (or EPES)

uSE Case 1

Shielding the EU borders: Addressing and Mitigating Cyberattacks and Data Leaking in Ukraine

This Use Case deals with cybersecurity scenarios inspired by the Ukraine power grid hack incident in 2015. 

USE CASE 2

Looking ahead: Providing a Resilient Electric Vehicle Ecosystem

This Use Case deals with cyber-attacks against Electric Vehicle (EV) charging stations, installed in three different parts of Greece, forming a large-scale charging station network. Various cyber-attacks will be unleashed to validate the ELECTRON platform’s ability to protect the EV charging infrastructure. 

uSE Case 3

Protecting the Renewables Energy Chain from Cyberattacks and Data Leaking

The main objective of this use case is to improve cyber security through the identification and assessment of risks in windfarms, approaching of cyber-secure architectures and communications and, where appropriate, designing and developing effective actions against the problems. 

USE CASE 4

Proactive Islanding Meets Efficient Threat Detection: Addressing & Mitigating Cyberattacks in the Romanian Energy Chain.

This Use Case deals with five real-worlcybersecurity scenarios against the Romanian power grid, including false-data injections, unauthorized access, distributed denial of service attacks, advanced persistent threats, and proactive islanding in order to mitigate potential disturbances. 

Objectives

Deliver the enterprise-level ELECTRON components for ensuring increased resilience of EPES, while assuring the continuity of
the critical business and operations of the energy community

Provide a modern collaborative risk and certificate framework by involving different energy stakeholders in line with the
Cybersecurity Act

Provide a next generation EPES cyber-defence & protection framework, by involving a decentralised and federated learning

Design and implement a nanogrid-based prevention and mitigation scheme for protecting the grid against cyberattacks and
cascading effects

Addressing the cyber threats, gaps, and failures coming from inside the EPES by setting up an efficient EPES cybersecurity
training process based on advanced AR/VR methods,

Meeting the EU cybersecurity policy and certification requirements for EPES, by designing and inaugurating the ELECTRON Cybersecurity Lighthouse 

Validating and demonstrating the integrated ELECTRON products and solutions through large-scale, focused, and high-impact use cases
