Taken in part from an article on, this article looks a pulling together all information and plans for a smart grid in the USA

September 2009

An accelerated plan for developing standards to transform the U.S. power distribution system into a secure, more efficient and environmentally friendly Smart Grid and create clean-energy jobs has been recently released.

Produced by the Commerce Department’s National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), the approximately 90-page document identifies about 80 initial standards that will enable the vast number of interconnected devices and systems that will make up the nationwide Smart Grid to communicate and work with each other.

These standards will support interoperability of all the various pieces of the system—ranging from large utility companies down to individual homes and electronic devices.

I have a deep seated interest in this subject, so was pleased to find this article and will follow up on it over the next few weeks to keep track of it, I think its worth at least 1/2 cpd so far,
