  • 1. Regional Cyber and Energy Security (RCES) Center for Distributed Generation Systems Ralph Martinez, PhD PI, Ricardo, Pineda, PhD, Co-PI Center for Environmental Resource Management (CERM) &Research Institute for Manufacturing and Engineering Systems (RIMES) rmartinez59@utep.edu, rlpineda@utep.edu 915-747-5433 26 October 2011
  • 2. Topics • The “Fierce Urgency of Now”, Going Beyond the Phiston Feasibility Report y p • What is the Regional Cyber and Energy Security (RCES) Center for Distributed Generation Systems? • Benefits of the RCES to El Paso Region • Summary @ The University of Texas at El Paso, Proprietary Information, Not for Public Distribution 2
  • 3. “The Fierce Urgency of Now”, Going Beyond the Phiston Report Cyber and Energy Security are a top priority in the DoD, DOE, and many government, industry, and community sectors U.S. U S Army Definition: Energy Security Surety, Survivability, Supply, Sufficiency, Sustainability – these are the core characteristics defining the energy security necessary for the full range of Army missions. Energy Security for the Army means preventing loss of access to power and fuel sources (surety), ensuring resilience in energy systems (survivability), accessing alternative and renewable energy sources available on installations (supply), providing adequate power for critical missions (sufficiency), and promoting support for the Army’s mission, its community, and the environment (sustainability). Smart Grid Cyber Security addresses deliberate attacks launched by disgruntled employees, agents of industrial espionage, and terrorists, and inadvertent compromises of the information infrastructure due to user errors, equipment failures, and natural , q p , disasters. Cyber security measures prevent potential attackers to penetrate a network, gain access to control software, and alter load conditions to destabilize the power grid in unpredictable ways. @ The University of Texas at El Paso, Proprietary Information, Not for Public Distribution 3
  • 4. Recent Cyber and Energy Security IncidentsCyber Security Incidents• Insider Security Threats to Utilities• Security Incidents Rise In Industrial Control Systems• Spike In Power Grid Attacks Likely In Next 12 MonthsEnergy Security Incidents• One Electrical Worker Blamed for Leaving Millions Without Power in California, Arizona and Mexico, September 2011 • Cost estimate of San Diego outage tops $100 million• Arizona Wildfire Forces Evacuations as Texas New Mexico Face Power Texas, Outages • Busy Arizona wildfire season burns up state budget• February s February’s freeze still has the Sun City shivering • Price tag for frigid storm could top $100 million • El Paso Electric Reports and Links on Winter Storm 2011• Over the next 5 years, electric utilities face a reduction in force of 45% of 7000 y engineers due to retirement or job movement, increasing the security risks to the utility power grids @ The University of Texas at El Paso, Proprietary Information, Not for Public Distribution 4
  • 5. Proposal • We propose to establish a Cyber and Energy Security Center to address two national problems of modern energy systems: • Cyber and physical security to protect energy systems from inadvertent and deliberate disruptions of energy service • Integration, test, certification of distributed generation systems and technology into current grids @ The University of Texas at El Paso, Proprietary Information, Not for Public Distribution 5
  • 6. Why is this needed? • Energy systems can crash: • Weather, Weather natural disaster and fire damage • Unexpected loads • Sub-systems that do not interoperate properly • Deliberate or inadvertent cyber and physical interference • When they crash they affect everything: • Other utilities: water, gas, pipeline, sewer • Transportation • Communications • Business operations • Military installations • Daily life (home/school/work) @ The University of Texas at El Paso, Proprietary Information, Not for Public Distribution 6
