novel concept of using cyber insurance to transfer cyber risk
from a PEV user to a third party in a PEV charging situation.
This article first presents a discussion about the potential
cyber risks in V2G systems, and then proposes an interesting
method of using cyber insurance to reduce the risk of paying
high energy costs of PEV charging due to the unavailability of
data communications.
We would like to thank all the authors who submitted
their work to this special issue. We also would like to express
our thanks to the many experts in the field who participated
in the review process on a very tight schedule. Last but not
least, we want to give our deep thanks to the Editor-in-Chief,
Professor Nei Kato, for providing us with timely guidance
and support.
