The Smart Grid Interoperability Panel (SGIP) has made the first six entries into its new Catalog of Standards, a technical document now available as a guide for all involved with Smart Grid-related technology.

The six standards, all of which had been approved previously by the SGIP’s Governing Board, received approval by greater than 90 percent of the broader SGIP membership in voting earlier this month. The SGIP, a consensus-based group of more than 675 public and private organizations (with nearly 1,800 individual members), was created by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) to coordinate the development of Smart Grid standards. While the SGIP does not develop or write these standards directly, a vote of approval signifies that its member organizations have agreed on the inclusion of a group of standards in the catalog.
