Smart Grid Interoperability Panel (SGIP)

Overview

The Smart Grid Interoperability Panel (SGIP) engages stakeholders from the entire Smart Grid Community in a participatory public process to identify applicable standards, gaps in currently available standards, and priorities for new standardization activities for the evolving Smart Grid. Thus, the SGIP supports NIST in fulfilling its responsibilities under the 2007 Energy Independence and Security Act.

The latest information on SGIP activities, including upcoming meetings and events, is available at the SGIP web site. Link to the web site here. The latest SGIP newsletter, as well as past editions, is posted here.

Priority Actions

Collaborating with the Smart Grid community, NIST categorized priority actions to define challenges to and objectives for developing interoperability for the Smart Grid. Each of eighteen priority action plans listed below are linked to key standards organizations and users associations interested in specific Smart Grid standards. Technical descriptions of priority action plans and associated smart grid stakeholders are available thru links to the Smart Grid collaborative wiki  and in the table below:
