About us

We are the IEC System Committee Smart Energy

We aim to provide a “GPS or Radar” to the TC/SCs and to other Standards Development Organizations (SDOs) and Consortia, related to standardization in the Smart Energy domain. Our goal is to enable the entire community operating while helping stakeholders to identify their position in the whole system that they are contributing to. One concrete approach consists of collectively elaborating on a master Development Plan to visualize new ideas under consideration by the TCs/SCs and other SDOs, much earlier than when they are effectively implemented. That approach should help in preventing, rather than resolving potential conflicting activities which are increasing regarding systems.
