ITI has emerged as one of the nation’s leaders in the field of power grid cyber security. ITI currently has several power-grid-related initiatives in progress. The most visible has been the Trustworthy Cyber Infrastructure for the Power Grid (TCIPG) Center, an $18.8 million initiative begun in 2009 with support from the U.S. Department of Energy and U.S. Department of Homeland Security. TCIPG has now been succeeded by the $28.1 million Cyber Resilient Energy Delivery Consortium (CREDC), which was announced by the U.S. Department of Energy in October 2015. ITI is also home to the Illinois Center for a Smarter Grid. In addition, in 2010, ITI established a research partnership on power grid security with South Korea’s Electronics and Telecommunications Research Institute (ETRI).
