Charting the Path Toward Interoperability

With the guiding principle of implementing interoperability through collaboration, Grid-Interop brings together a true cross-section of industry stakeholders to ensure rapid development and implementation of Smart Grid interoperability standards.

In 2011, our focus will be on implementation progress to date -- with a real focus on demonstrating successes and progress.

The birth place of the Smart Grid Interoperability Panel, Grid-Interop creates dialogue among the key stakeholders shaping and driving the progress of standards development, including:

  • Standards development organizations.
  • Businesses that use and implement these standards.
  • Regulators that oversee the implementation of standards-based technologies.
  • Product designers, system integrators, and consultants who put the standards to work in real-life applications.

If you fit within any of these stakeholder groups, Grid-Interop is a must-attend conference for 2011. In addition to providing a clear snapshot of industry developments around interoperability standards to date, Grid-Interop provides a unique opportunity and forum to have your voice heard at this most critical time.
