ACCELERATING STANDARDS AND MEASUREMENTS FOR THE SMART GRID

Published

Author(s)

David A. Wollman

Abstract

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has efforts underway to accelerate the international development of interoperability standards to support the future modernized “Smart Grid” electric grid or energy delivery network characterized by a two-way flow of electricity and information, capable of monitoring and responding to changes in everything from power plants to customer preferences to individual appliances. Through a high-visibility, rapid, and open process that brought together the Smart Grid community, including utilities, equipment suppliers, network providers, IT application developers and integrators, government and consumers of electricity, NIST has developed and published its Framework and Roadmap for Smart Grid Interoperability Standards, Release 1.0, to create the basis for prioritizing, coordinating and accelerating the development of standards in private-sector standards setting organizations, including international standards development organizations such as the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) and the IEEE.
