CIGAR 'Smokes Out' Attacks on Solar Electrical Power Equipment

June 7, 2021

While the need for security in the power grid is clear, cybersecurity has typically been “bolted on” in a piecemeal fashion after the fact, rather than designed in from the outset. Enter the Cybersecurity via Inverter-Grid Automatic Reconfiguration (CIGAR) project, a recently completed Berkeley Lab effort aimed at providing security protections for emerging power systems.

Self-Supervised ML Adds Depth, Breadth & Speed to Sky Surveys

May 11, 2021

Sky surveys are invaluable for exploring the universe, but they are also one of the largest data generators in science. A team of researchers from Berkeley Lab is finding success in a new approach: self-supervised representation learning. Read More »


Limit Global Warming to 1.5°C and Halve the Land Ice Contribution to Sea Level this Century

May 5, 2021

A new study predicts that a major contributor to sea-level rise – melting land ice – could be halved this century (from today to 2100) if we meet the Paris Agreement target of limiting global warming to 1.5°C. This work combines nearly 900 simulations, including some of Berkeley Lab Computational Scientist Dan Martin's BISICLES models of Antarctic ice sheets. Read More »
