In shaping technical and rate policies in the globally emerging Smart Grid, public utility commissions, and other regulators around the world can source IEEE 2030 as a reference document and primer.
Dick DeBlasio, Chair, IEEE Standards Coordinating Committee
The Smart Grid is bringing definitive change to the world of electricity and regulation is one area that will be touched by the transformation. For example, in the United States, regulation of electricity distribution and retail has been historically fragmented among the public utility commissions (PUCs) within each state—just as operation of the electricity grid historically has been “silo-ed” among about 3,000 utilities.
