IEEE Smart Grid Web Portal



IEEE has launched the IEEE Smart Grid Web Portal, an integrated gateway to Smart Grid intelligence, education, and news from IEEE and other expert sources. The portal is designed for manufacturers, policymakers, educators, academics, governments, engineers, computer scientists, researchers, and other stakeholders in the power and energy, information technology, and communications industries.

The IEEE Smart Grid Web Portal is the first phase of IEEE Smart Grid, created to bring together IEEE's broad array of resources to provide expertise and guidance for those involved in Smart Grid worldwide.

The term "Smart Grid" refers to the next-generation, managed electrical power system that leverages increased use of communications and information technology in the generation, delivery, and consumption of electrical energy. The new IEEE Smart Grid initiative will organize, coordinate, leverage and build upon the strength of various entities within and outside of IEEE with Smart Grid expertise and interest.

According to Steve Diamond, member of the IEEE Board of Directors and past president of the IEEE Computer Society, "Given its global representation across the technology spectrum, IEEE is ideally positioned to deliver thought leadership and coordination to Smart Grid."

The first IEEE International Conference on Smart Grid Communications (SmartGridComm) will take place in October at NIST in Gaithersburg, Maryland, and will be centered on all communications aspects that are relevant to the Smart Grid.
