NEW YORK, Feb. 13, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --

Five Con Edison researchers have earned recognition for findings that help the energy industry manage solar projects, keep their systems safe from cyber attacks, and take advantage of the benefits of microgrids.

The employees earned the Technology Transfer Award from the Electric Power Research Institute, a national organization dedicated to the safe, reliable delivery of power.

“Rapid advances in technology give us new ways to serve customers, but also challenge us to understand complex, new concepts,” said Tim Cawley, the president of Con Edison. “The work our researchers have done with EPRI will help Con Edison and other energy companies keep their service safe and reliable as customer needs and technology continue to evolve.”

Energy companies like Con Edison can use the information to help plan how they deploy and manage solar energy on their electric-delivery systems in ways that keep service reliable for all customers.

Microgrids are local energy networks that are able to separate from the larger electrical grid during extreme weather events or emergencies, providing power to individual customers and crucial public services such as hospitals, first responders, and water treatment facilities.

Three researchers developed a system to help energy companies evaluate the strength of their substation cyber security protections. The method can help energy companies plan cyber security investments to protect their equipment and customers.

Those winners were: , a section manager in Protective Systems Testing, , a project specialist in Control Systems Engineering, and , a technical specialist in Corporate Security.
