PoGens Joins Membership of the Smart Grid Interoperability Panel and the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy
To further its goal of exchanging ideas with other progressive leaders in the power industry and in energy policy, Power Generation Services has recently joined both the Smart Grid Interoperability Panel (SGIP) and the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE). Both organizations bring together stakeholders in business, government, and academia to envision and facilitate the optimization of the power grid’s performance in the future.
SGIP was developed to support the National Institute of Standards and Technology in establishing interoperability standards for new technologies affecting the grid. SGIP provides a forum and a framework for cooperation among developers of grid technology and stakeholders in grid performance in order to increase the future Smart Grid’s overall coherence, security, and function. SGIP has formal agreements with multiple countries to assist in developing global standards for interoperability.
ACEEE is a non-profit organization seeking to promote energy efficiency as an imperative for the economy of the future. ACEEE emphasizes collaboration with business, government officials, and public interest groups for the purpose of educating and supporting decision makers in all arenas as the economy grows.
Power Generation Services anticipates to both benefit from and contribute to the dialogues SGIP and ACEEE have initiated. As an organization connecting clients’ generation assets to energy markets through a suite of advanced technologies, Power Generation Services views both energy efficiency and grid interoperability as critical functions of its business. Membership in SGIP and ACEEE promises to enhance these functions to the benefit of clients and utilities alike.
