As solar cybersecurity becomes critical, industry collaboration and education become vital
A discussion with Sungrow and Wood Mackenzie.

Just a decade ago, the idea that protecting solar photovoltaic (PV) power plants from cyberattacks was a matter of critical societal importance was far-fetched. The reason: solar capacity and the resulting electricity it delivered to the grid were just too small to really matter.
Today, it is undeniable that the protection of solar power plants from attack and disruption will only become an increasingly important societal priority.
This mini-brief explores protecting solar PV from cyberattacks and Sungrow's initiative to independently assess the cybersecurity of the equipment it sells in North America.
Key takeaways include:
- The current cybersecurity environment and key threats to solar power plants
- The vulnerabilities of inverters and approaches to enhancing inverter security in PV plants
- Sungrow & NTT Security's evaluation: summary of evaluating Sungrow's equipment, its findings and overview of the criteria measured.
