This set of pages results from the IEC SyC Smart Energy experts’ assessment (based on the former IEC SG3 and SEG2 group experts), and is intended to depict the portfolio of International Standards which may be used to support Smart Grids/Energy deployment worldwide.
The goal of this information is to facilitate interoperable solutions based on standards. This framework will assist Smart Grid system owners and others to specify their smart grid solutions corresponding to their own requirements and taking into account specific national legislation and local situations.
This document provides a selection guide, setting out, for the most common Smart Grid systems (see further),
the set of possible “System Capabilities” they can support,
which standards may be used, where, and for which purpose.
Limits of the exercise
Here are some limits the reader of this document should be aware of:
Selection of standards
All standards identified in this document have been selected by applying the following rules.
Standardization body ranking
In order to identify a standard fulfilling a defined set of requirements, the following procedure has been adopted.
“Open specifications” that are considered applicable from this document’s point of view, comply with the following criteria
Two maturity levels of the standards are considered:
Further sets of deliverables (including newly developed ones) should be available in due course.
