Secure Grid Data Exchange Using Cryptography, Peer-to-Peer Networks, and Blockchain Ledgers
Project Innovation + Advantages:
GridBright's project objective is to develop a cyber-secure, open-source, cloud-based solution for sharing sensitive grid-related data, directly addressing:
Increasing information sharing will improve grid operations through smarter solutions for managing resiliency, distributed resources, and renewables, ultimately decreasing carbon dioxide emissions in the U.S.
The secure grid data exchange would eliminate the need for expensive private communications networks and improve grid operator productivity, which eventually benefits everyone through reduced electricity costs.
