Energy infrastructure should be flexible enough to accommodate change in response to new, expected, or unexpected internal or external system drivers.This collaboration effort with industry articulates general interoperability requirements along with methodologies and tools for simplifying the integration and cyber-secure interaction among the various devices and systems that constitute the electric power grid. This includes related end-use systems such as buildings, electric vehicles, and distributed energy resources.

The mission of this project is to establish a strategic vision of interoperability for grid modernization with implementation illustrations. The objectives are:

  • Establish a strategic vision for interoperability
  • Measure the state of interoperability in technical domains
  • Identify gaps and roadmaps
  • Ensure industry engagement.
