Primary Areas of Joint Collaboration
EU - A Smart Grid is “an electricity network that can intelligently integrate the behavior and actions of all users connected to it - generators, consumers and those that do both - in order to efficiently ensure sustainable, economic and secure electricity supply” [EC Smart Grid Task Force].
US - A Smart Grid uses digital technology to improve reliability, security, and efficiency (both economic and energy) of the electric system from large generation, through the delivery systems to electricity consumers and a growing number of distributed-generation and storage resources [DOE System Report].

Key Questions to Address
1. What was purchased, built, and deployed?
• # of assets or programs
• Type of assets or programs
Configuration of assets
2. How much did it cost?
• Cost segmentation: assets, labor , and specific asset type
3. Where was it installed?
• NERC Region, State, or recipient locations
4. How much of the system was affected?
• % of system, % of customers, % of load
5. What does it do?
• Characteristics of assets or programs: Intended function or use of assets
Given the diversity of studies being undertaken as part of the SGIG program, we have a unique opportunity to evaluate issues in several topical areas:
