Under the Energy Independence and Security Act (EISA) of 2007, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (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…"
NIST is well-suited for this role. The agency has earned a reputation as an “honest broker”—an impartial, technically knowledgeable third party with a long history of working collaboratively with industry and other government agencies. These partners include DOE and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC).
