Smart Energy moves ahead

Systems Committee on Smart Energy Technical Committee Forum

Smart Energy can be described as connecting many points of generation with many points of consumption, from end-to-end,  not limited to just the electric grid. Smart Energy is also about all energy needs for Smart Cities. The IEC Systems Committee (SyC) on Smart Energy aims to create one international platform for a comprehensive portfolio of standards – efficient and easy-to-use standards that can be used by any project working on Smart Energy.  The work of SyC Smart Energy includes wide consultation within the IEC community and a broader group of external stakeholders, in the areas of Smart Energy and Smart Grid, also including Heat and Gas.

No power without communication

Communication between equipment and systems is increasingly important for electric power grids

A transition from one-way power distribution structures to two-way grids, where information is exchanged in both directions between producers and consumers, is taking place. This change to Smart Grids requires the incorporation of interoperable equipment and systems for controlling the electric power process into integrated systems and solutions. IEC Technical Committee (TC) 57: Power system management and associated information exchange, develops International Standards that are critical to this integration.
