ELECTRON at a glance

ELECTRON is an acronym for rEsilient and seLf-healed EleCTRical pOwer Nanogrid and is an Innovation action. ELECTRON aims at delivering a new-generation Electrical Power and Energy Systems (EPES) platform, capable of empowering the resilience of energy systems against cyber, privacy, and data attacks through four main pillars:

  • risk assessment and certification
  • anomaly detection and prevention
  • failure mitigation
  • energy restoration

ELECTRON will address internalthreats and gaps through AR-VR-based personnel training and certification), while fostering the cyber protection standardisation and certification via three novel authorities, namely:

  • the cybersecurity lighthouse,
  • the cybersecurity training and certification authority,
  • and the energy trading centre.
