NIST Smart Grid Advisory Committee
The Committee provides input to NIST on the smart grid standards, priorities and gaps, and on the overall direction, status and health of the smart grid implementation by the smart grid industry including identification of issues and needs. Input to NIST will be used to help guide Smart Grid Interoperability Panel activities and also assist NIST in directing research and standards activities. The duties of the Committee are solely advisory in nature in accordance with the provisions of the Federal Advisory Committee Act. A copy of the Committee Charter is accessible here.
Under the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007, NIST has "primary responsibility to coordinate development of a framework that includes protocols and model standards for information management to achieve interoperability of smart grid devices and systems."
