SGIP Webinar “Regulatory Commission Members Discuss How SGIP Helps Shape Smart Grid State and Federal Policies”

4,455 views

Published on

State and local regulators came together on this Smart Grid Interoperability Panel (SGIP) webinar to discuss key important issue to them. SGIP Member regulators discussed how they apply their SGIP experiences to improve on-the-job performance by saving valuable real-time Commission resources and better serve their constituents.

Participating Member State Commission representatives highlighted specific work of SGIP committees and sub-committees where involvement by state commissioners and their staff have yielded high impact results including the Business & Policy Domain Expert Working Group; Smart Grid Implementation Methods Committee; Smart Grid Cybersecurity Committee Privacy Subgroup; and the Priority Action Plan (PAP-20) for Green Button Energy Services Provider Interface Evolution.

Panelists were Commissioner Haque, Ohio Public Utilities Commission, Amanda Stallings, Staffer Ohio Public Utilities Commission, Chris Villarreal, Senior Regulatory Analyst, California Public Utilities Commission and Patrick Hudson, Smart Grid Section Manager, Michigan Public Service Commission. The session was moderated by Commissioner Nick Wagner, Iowa Utilities Board and SGIP Board Director representing the Stakeholders Group for State and Local Regulators (Category 19).

In addition, learn how the activities SGIP members pursue have important state and federal policy implications, such as:

 Preparing guidance for the protection of consumer privacy and consumer access to electricity usage data;

 Developing cybersecurity guidelines for standards that may be incorporated in power system reliability rules and critical infrastructure guidance;

 Highlighting the utilities’ experiences, benefits and issues in implementation of interoperable Smart Grid systems; and

 Identifying performance and reliability requirements for Smart Grid communications.
