Building a Secure, Interoperable, Global Network of Distributed Energy Resources.

Learn More


In this decade, millions of solar+storage systems, public EV charging stations, and bi-directional EV’s will come online. Fully leveraged, these assets become critical infrastructure to balance energy generation with demand, form virtual power plants on the fly, and instill stability and resilience in the power grid.

To realize this future, a service that combines three critical elements is required:


An interoperable network that includes stationary- and mobile DER assets.


An integrated cyber/physical security solution that enables DER assets to detect, defend, and recover from cyber/physical attacks that are unique to the power grid.


An adaptive machine learning system that ties it all together.

DER Security Corp (“DERSec”) is building a secure communication network that combines global interoperability with cutting-edge cyber/physical security protection, detection, resilience, and recovery technology for the 21st century grid.


The foundation of the DERSec solution are tools for confirming cyber/physical interoperability, network server load testing, and client-level network access.



For fleet managers and grid operators, DERSec NetOps is a complete solution for commissioning, deploying, operating, and optimizing DER networks at scale where IEEE 1547-2018 conformance is required.

For power conversion device manufacturers, DERSec NetOps provides a network and security solution that enables successful U.S. market entry and verifiable security segmentation between the power conversion- and power control planes.
