SEG-2, Smart Grid -> Smart Energy SyC
The SMB noted that the recommendations made by SEG 2, Smart Grid had been approved. SMB formally disbanded Strategic Group 3 and thanked it for its valuable pioneering work.
The SMB agreed to propose the setting up of a new Systems Committee (SyC) on Smart Energy with the following scope:
"SyC Smart Energy to provide systems level standardization, coordination and guidance in the areas of Smart Grid and Smart Energy, including interaction in the areas of heat and gas.
To widely consult within the IEC community and the broader stakeholder community to provide overall systems level value, support and guidance to the TCs and other standards development groups, both inside and outside the IEC.
To liaise/cooperate with the SEG Smart Cities and relevant SEGs and SyCs, as well as the future SRG."
The creation of the SyC on Smart Energy will be voted by the IEC National Committees in the same process as is used for creation of a new Technical Committee.
The convenor and secretary of SEG 2 are asked to complete a formal report on the work of SEG 2 addressing the points necessary for the formation of a SyC by 15 March 2014.
