The Smart Energy community faces daunting challenges in evolving the grid to accommodate the rapidly changing systems environment. Part of the solution is specifying standards-based products to increase the potential vendor population, reduce system integration costs, increase system reliability and resiliency, and reduce time to deployment. In-the-field interoperability requires understanding how best to use and specify standards across a variety of applications. The industry has made great strides in establishing standards to promote product interoperability. But the selection of technology standards is just the starting point.

Challenges you’ll face include:

  • Assessing interoperability of products based on a standard
  • Understanding how best to specify and benefit from a selected standard
  • Training your team how to adopt and deploy selected standards
  • How to leverage an industry eco-system based on implementing a particular interface or communications standard
