Elering and TalTech will cooperate in IT energy data analysis and cybersecurity

Estonia’s transmission system operator Elering is continuing cooperation with Tallinn University of Technology and expanding partnership in the area of IT energy data analysis and cybersecurity.

The new joint undertaking will centre the focus on the impact of climate goals on power grids, the energy economy, promotion of renewables, management of energy storage and consumption, smart management of the energy system, digitalisation and cybersecurity in the energy system.

“Currently, the energy sector is very much related to cybersecurity, and therefore, we are renewing our framework agreement and improving our energy sector cooperation activities, which have been excellent with the IT competence of TalTech”, noted Taavi Veskimägi, Chairman of the Management Board of Elering.

Stressing that the energy system of coming times must be greener and smarter, yet affordable and reliable, he added that “this multidisciplinary cooperation provides for both Elering and its clients all the abilities of the university in order to ensure that the Estonian power grid is reliable both in terms of hardware and software.”
