SGIP May 22 Webinar "Getting to Truly Interoperable Power Grid Solutions: A Utility Deployment Case Study and Lessons Learned"

757 views

Published on

Understanding what it takes to achieve the goal of interoperable products is the starting point for utility engineers and program managers. This webinar is an introduction to the importance of testing and certification to minimize the cost and time needed to deploy power grid solutions.

Webinar Agenda:
Case study of Sacramento Municipal Utility District’s (SMUD) early experience with Home Area Network (HAN) device deployments, the extraordinary steps taken to achieve required product interoperability, and lessons learned.

Discussion of what it takes to achieve true interoperability, what resources are currently available, and how the SGTCC is contributing to these efforts.

Attendees will gain specific insight into the challenges of achieving interoperability and what standards and tools are available to help them be a more sophisticated buyers and or users of products that meet the interoperability criteria.
