IEEE, the world's largest professional organization advancing technology
for humanity, today announced updates to four standards and a new
standards-development project that provide new communications and
operational capabilities needed for smart grid worldwide. The new
standards activities are among the latest smart grid contributions to
come from the IEEE Standards Association (IEEE-SA), which has a
portfolio of 100 standards and standards in development pertaining to
this vitally important industry.
"IEEE is continually updating its standards and developing new standards
to address the needs of utilities around the world as they integrate new
technologies and upgrade their systems to meet current and future
operational and service objectives for smart grids," said Bill Ash,
strategic program manager, IEEE-SA. "These latest IEEE standards
activities underscore the importance for new standards to support the
growth and evolution of the smart grid industry globally."
The latest IEEE smart grid standards include:
