IEEE Smart Grid Day
A complete smart grid program is planned at this year's IEEE PES T&D Conference to highlight lessons and identify opportunities as experts reflect upon the most recent smart grid developments.
The Smart Grid Day opens on Wednesday, May 9 at 8 a.m. with Wanda Reder, IEEE Smart Grid chairperson addressing the IEEE approach for coordinating smart grid activity and reviewing the IEEE Smart Grid day.
Next up is "Smart Grid Standards: Development and Gaps," with John McDonald, GE Energy and NIST SGIP Governing Board chair moderating. The session covers recent standards developments and efforts to address interoperability gaps. The harmonization of standards and how international coordination impacts trade barriers will also be discussed. It will also address the importance of utility participation in standards development including the benefits to the utility and their personnel who are involved in the process.
