DOE Opens Call for Deployable Solutions to Secure America’s Power Grid
The Cybersecurity Accelerator Program allows participants to work to advance cyber innovation, address grid vulnerabilities and support the transition to a greener energy future.
According to the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), DOE and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) today announced a call for applications for the second cohort of the Clean Energy Cybersecurity Accelerator (CECA) program. The program brings together federal experts, energy industry representatives, and innovators in a unified effort to rapidly develop cybersecurity solutions for renewable energy resources and other grid operations and to bring them to market faster. CECA is a key component of DOE’s strategy to ensure America’s critical energy infrastructure remains reliable, resilient, and secure as more renewable energy is incorporated into the generation mix to achieve President Biden’s ambitious vision of a 100% clean electricity sector by 2035 and net-zero economy by 2050.
