Energy Storage Systems (ESS) are an increasingly important asset in power grids, capable of providing several essential services to systems dominated by intermittent renewable energy resources. Such relevance turns ESS into a potential target for attacks. Some of their applications require these distributed devices to communicate with remote entities, such as grid operators, manufacturers and other field equipment, which poses a challenge for cybersecurity. This talk will present risks an overview of physical and cyberattacks on power grids, as well as current research, standards, and industry best practices that can make ESS more secure.
