The Grid 3.0 Roundtable will bring together approximately 25 thought leaders and experts from a variety of stakeholders including utilities, ISOs / RTOs, regulators, federal agencies, manufacturers and researchers to discuss and align on the critical issues facing the electricity sector and the interoperability-related challenges associated with these issues. In this context, "Grid 1.0" can be thought of as the legacy grid of the 20th century, "Grid 2.0" is the emergence of the smart grid with automation and information technology improvements, and "Grid 3.0" is what comes next: for example, a future grid with advanced grid operations and greater interactions with consumers and other infrastructures.
To enable a broad smart grid and general audience to listen in to the Roundtable conversation, NIST will live webcast the event, available through this webpage on the day of the event, or via pre-registration (see links on the right of this page).
The Roundtable is the first step of a two-step process. The next step is to organize an open workshop that brings together subject matter experts to drill down into the interoperability challenges identified at the Roundtable and determine the development work needed to overcome them. More details on the scheduling of second workshop event will be announced when available.
