When offshore windmills talk to EV charging stations on the street

Vattenfall has found a way to avoid grid congestion. By allowing windmills and electric cars to communicate with each other about the energy supply and charging requirements, the Swedish energy company wants to ensure that the demand for electric transport does not exceed the capacity of the grid. Vattenfall aims to achieve this with a “smart charging with wind energy” pilot using the new Hollandse Kust West wind farm.

The challenges in the war on cyberattacks

The energy sector is increasingly facing the threat of cyberattacks, and in particular ransomware attacks. Energy is now one of the top three industries reporting this issue. What can the energy sector do to protect itself from cyberattacks? And more specifically, how can offshore wind farms protect themselves?
