On Monday 12th September, “the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the ‘CEN CENELEC ETSI’ Smart Grid – Coordination Group (SG-CG) jointly announced their intention to work together on Smart Grid standards, emphasizing common goals and areas of focus. 
 

Smart Grids are next-generation electrical grids that attempt to predict and intelligently respond to the behavior and actions of all electric power users connected to it – suppliers, consumers and those that do both – in order to efficiently deliver reliable, economical and sustainable electricity services. The new collaboration is meant to ensure that Smart Grid standards on both continents have as much in common as possible, so that devices and systems that interact with these grids can be designed in similar fashion.”
