IEC Announces Online Smart Grid Standard Mapping Solution
The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) announced that it will launch its online IEC Smart Grid Standard Mapping Solution. This multidimensional interactive tool will create a map of the smart grid and enable smart grid managers around the world to quickly identify IEC international smart grid standards, position them in relation to their role in the smart grid, and point out possible interactions and overlaps. The announcement was made at the GridWeek conference, during a panel discussion on Global Markets and Global Standards for the smart grid.
The mapping solution will launch by the end of 2010 or early 2011, and has already been recognized by major smart grid standard players (United States’ National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), CEN CENELEC, and others).
