CHICAGO -- Driving the standards and interoperability roadmap for the rapidly expanding Smart Grid, government, industry and academic leaders will convene at the Grid-Interop Conference on Nov. 30 through Dec. 3 at the Stevens Convention Center in Rosemont, IL.
Held in partnership with the GridWise Architecture Council, NIST and the Smart Grid Interoperability Panel (SGIP), Grid-Interop is the annual event where industry experts, utility stakeholders and policy makers discuss, debate, and determine the path to create interoperable systems and technology for the Smart Grid.
This conference, now in its fourth year, is the most in-depth technology conference focused on Smart Grid interoperability standards in the industry, attracting key players from the electric utilities, software, cable, semiconductor, telecommunications and electricity consumer sectors.
"Grid-Interop is the birthplace of the Smart Grid Interoperability Panel, and is the central meeting place where we, as an industry, gather to address and advance Smart Grid standards and interoperability challenges," said Anto Budiardjo, president of Clasma Events. "Last month GridWeek set the agenda for Smart Grid advancement. Next month, we'll gather at Grid-Interop to continue setting the building blocks to achieve that vision."
In addition to SGIP meeting sessions, the conference will cover a broad range of Smart Grid interoperability issues from demand response and cyber security, information interoperability, and communications and substation networks, to the value and security of customer data.
