Section 1305 of the Energy Independence and Security Act (EISA) of 2007 (Pub. L. 110140) directs NIST to coordinate the development of a framework that includes protocols and model standards for information management to achieve interoperability of smart grid devices and systems. To meet these statutory goals, in January 2010, NIST published the NIST Framework and Roadmap for Smart Grid Interoperability Standards, Release 1.0 (Release 1.0), and in February 2012, NIST published the NIST Framework and Roadmap for Smart Grid Interoperability Standards, Release 2.0 (Release 2.0), which updated the material discussed in Release 1.0. This document is Release 3.0 and builds upon the work in previous releases with an update on the progress since Release 2.0; a description of the Smart Grid Interoperability Panel (SGIP); updated architecture, cybersecurity, and testing and certification chapters; and a new chapter on cross-cutting issues and future directions. Since the release of the last edition of the NIST Framework and Roadmap for Smart Grid Interoperability Standards (Release 2.0), advances in smart grid infrastructure have been implemented. Examples include the widespread deployment of wireless-communication power meters, the availability of customer energy usage data through the Green Button initiative, remote sensing for determining real-time transmission and distribution status, and protocols for electric vehicle charging, supported by standards development across the entire smart grid arena. This release updates NISTs ongoing efforts to facilitate and coordinate smart grid interoperability standards development and smart grid-related measurement science and technology, including the evolving and continuing NIST relationship with the SGIP.
