The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) publishes a Success Story on Operant Networks as a Clean Energy Technology Startup Helping to Close the Door to Cyber Threats
Santa Rosa, CA - As the United States transitions to a clean energy future, the need for a secure, reliable, and coordinated cybersecurity approach for distributed energy resources (DER) becomes increasingly critical. Operant Networks has developed a novel technology that simplifies connecting distributed energy facilities to the broader electric grid.
Backed by multiple U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) research projects and a successful $3.8M Seed funding raise last year led by Constellation Technology Ventures, Operant is quickly becoming a leader in the industry. Today, we are providing secure and reliable connections to over 5GW of grid-connected generation facilities.
A recent success story spotlight from the DOE Office of Energy Efficiency & Renewable Energy (EERE) showcased Operant’s solution as the “clean energy networking technology [that] helps close [the] door to cyber threats”.
Previously, in a report published in 2021 called, The Solar Futures Study, Operant Network’s technology was identified as potentially “game-changing” with regards to enabling the transition to renewables while protecting national security.
Operant Networks is the leading provider of machine-to-machine communications using a novel networking technology that provides intelligence and security on data packets. Founded in 2016, Operant has been developing their solutions with funding from the Department of Energy and U.S. Air Force. Operant, headquartered in Santa Rosa, California, has participated in a number of technology startup programs including Alchemist Accelerator, CleanTech Open, and Creative Destructive Labs.
