The IEC is an endorsing partner organization again
For five years now the GridWeek event has had global recognition as an important Smart Grid gathering for policy and decision makers, regulators, technology and service providers, electricity consumer advocates and Smart Grid experts. The IEC will again be present as one of the endorsing partner organizations. GridWeek 2011 takes place on 12-15 September in Washington DC, US (United States).
Attracting wide diversity of Smart Grid stakeholders
One of an impressive panel of Smart Grid experts, Richard Schomberg, Chairman of the IEC Smart Grid Strategic Group, will be speaking on International Collaboration on Smart Grid Standards, in a session on Monday afternoon moderated by George Arnold, National Coordinator for Smart Grid Interoperability, NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology, United States).
The organizers claim that GridWeek is the only event to attract such a wide diversity of global Smart Grid stakeholders. The event explores the Smart Grid’s impact on utility infrastructures, consumers, the economy and the environment, while answering the most pressing questions raised by industry.
In the same session, Steve Widergren, 2011 Plenary Chair of the SGIP (Smart Grid Interoperability Panel), will report on efforts to integrate international participation to ensure Smart Grid standards-making is coordinated and harmonized around the world. George Arnold will then moderate panellists from a wide set of countries in discussing progress on developing International Standards for the Smart Grid and the positive impacts these efforts will have on industry, government, and consumers.
