IEEE, the world’s largest professional association advancing technology for humanity, has announced five new standards, as well as a modified standards development project, that are all intended to aid the efficient rollout of the smart grid worldwide. The new standards and standards projects recently approved by the IEEE Standards Association (IEEE-SA) Standards Board carve critical new dimensions into the IEEE portfolio of more than 100 active standards or standards in development relevant to the smart grid.
“The new standards approved by the IEEE-SA Standards Board are the byproduct of intensifying smart grid deployment around the world,” said Judith Gorman, managing director, IEEE-SA. “New lessons have been learned, and best practices and insights on challenges are surfacing as smart grid rollout continues to gain steam globally. The IEEE-SA has been a worldwide leader in smart grid standards development even prior to the movement’s inception, and these standards and projects underscore our ongoing commitment to accelerating realisation of the smart grid’s farranging and futuristic promise for power users, utilities and manufacturers alike.”
