University of Arkansas Leads Collaborative Effort to Enhance Cybersecurity in Solar Inverters

The University of Arkansas is leading a project under the U.S. Department of Energy’s Solar Energy Technologies Office to enhance the cybersecurity of solar inverters. Collaborating with several universities, laboratories, and industry partners, researchers stripped down conventional inverters and integrated custom-designed controls with advanced cybersecurity measures. Field tests on solar farms validated these enhancements. The project, involving partners like Argonne National Laboratory and General Electric Research, aims to strengthen renewable energy security and support a sustainable energy future.
