Areas of Focus
Interoperability is key when introducing new technologies and systems. Most of the work that SGIP conducts is directed at interoperability and simpler, better integration.
The convergence of IT and OT has created new opportunities for the Internet of Things within the energy business. We believe this is an exciting way to enhance interoperability and are committed to helping the industry move in that direction.

What if utilities could reduce stranded assets and extend the life of fielded devices even as technology and functionality requirements change? What if fielded devices and systems could automatically announce themselves and securely interact with other fielded resources as appropriate? What if analytics and some command and control could happen in the field instead of from a centralized location within a utility? What if a newly fielded device could automatically provision itself and discover other fielded devices and systems to get necessary data from?

Missed the TE Challenge Webinar?
The Transactive Energy Modeling and Simulation Challenge for the Smart Grid ("TE Challenge") brings researchers and companies with simulation tools together with utilities, product developers, and other grid stakeholders to create and demonstrate modeling and simulation platforms while applying TE approaches to real grid problems. The products of the challenge will help the industry better understand the potential for TE and create a path for real-world trial implementations. This webinar will provide an overview of the TE Challenge, draft plans of some industry representatives for participation, and how you can get involved and benefit from the Challenge.
