Quantum Security and Infrastructure: Risks and Benefits for the Energy Grid
Despite recent efforts on behalf of world leaders to cut energy consumption, global energy demand is projected to increase by 50 percent between 2022 and 2050. With this rapidly growing demand for energy comes the need for more connected devices to regulate the generation, transmission, and distribution of energy. Today’s grid relies on a vast number of networked devices and sensors that constantly monitor energy inputs and outputs to optimize The Grid. While technology has greatly aided the energy sector with managing the flow of energy across the country, it has also created more devices and data points to manage and subsequently opened The Grid to a colossal number of cyber-attack surfaces for foreign adversaries to exploit. The development of quantum technologies has the potential to be both the antidote and kryptonite for The Grid’s growing problem.
