After Dr. Ten and his team develop valuable cybersecurity assets, their findings will be integrated into education and workforce development programs.

These assets will be able to support high integration of Distributed Energy Resources (DERs), which can operate as microgrids.

For a greener and more resilient future, advanced power networks like microgrid-integrated distribution systems and Distributed Energy Resources (DERs) are paving the way towards smarter energy management and sustainability
