Smart grid

From optimizing reservoirs, production and drilling operations to safety assurance and asset management and maintenance, energy firms must successfully address a growing range of business and technical issues. Equipment Reliability and Longevity New extraction techniques—and a greater reliance on sophisticated technology—lead market analysts to predict that M2M device usage will nearly triple over the next four years. But how can you efficiently manage those devices?

The right Standard, right away Making electrotechnology work for you. Easily and instantly identify the standards that are needed for any part of the Smart Grid — no need to be a standards expert Reliable and reproducible results — every time — now and in the future Cost-effective and fast — no need to wade through thousands of pages of standards documents With this tool you are able to identify any given standard in relation to its role within the Smart Grid.

New standards are added regularly. If you have any suggestions or questions, please contact us. These experts sit together, define and agree on the rules, specifications, measurement methodologies and testing requirements that are needed to do business in the global market.

They develop International Standards that cover all aspects of safety, interoperability, efficiency, electromagnetic compatibility and environmental impact.

The IEC's fundamental mission is to make electrotechnology work for industries and countries throughout the world. Beyond the Smart Grid, the IEC is also deeply involved in improving the efficiency, safety and performance of all devices and systems that contain electronics and generate, use, distribute or store electricity.

There are multiple paths to finding the Smart Grid standard you need. It includes clusters that form the generic Smart Grid landscape. Components of the grid are located in topological communities grouped into systems, or so-called "functional clusters". Clicking on a component inside a cluster opens a new view that provides a drop-down list of standards that apply to that component.

If you would like the drop-down to stay open, double-click inside the component frame. To close the drop-down list, click on the "x"on the right top corner. Here you also find links to use cases, where available. Standard number right hand side of the page If you know the standard number you need, select it from the list.

IEC Standards are listed first, all the others are in alphabetical order. Click on the standard once you find it in the list and you will see all the other parts of the grid where it applies.

If you want to buy that standard you are directly rerouted to the corresponding site, for example the IEC Webstore.

About the IEC The IEC is a not-for-profit organization that brings together countries and offers a global platform to over 13 experts from industry, governments and user-groups.Pacific Northwest Smart Grid Demonstration Project.

Over the past decade, the Pacific Northwest region has been a pioneer in the nation's emerging smart grid agenda, contributing technology, utility applications, customer engagement strategies, and policy.

Living with smart energy Digital grid technologies enable energy management systems that can help you manage the energy used in your home. The smart grid, combined solar panels and a plug-in electric vehicle, can not only help you save on your energy costs, but can help you reduce your carbon footprint at the same time.

We engineer smart electricity meters through custom-made options for our utility customers and multi-utility advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) systems for electricity, water, and gas provide the information, the insight and the intelligence you need to control your energy consumption.

Smart Grid for Schools. Illinois State University has designed and implemented a Smart Grid for Schools program, which offers schools the opportunity to learn about the new Smart Grid technology currently being rolled out by the utilities companies in your area.

What are smart meters? Smart meters, a common form of smart grid technology, are digital meters that replace the old analog meters used in homes to record electrical usage.

Encouraging and regulating smart grid technologies and developments are increasingly important aspects of state policy and are also driving the effort to modernize the nation’s energy infrastructure.
