The IEEE Standards Association (IEEE-SA) announced that it has become an associate member of the India Smart Grid Forum (ISGF) promoted by Ministry of Power, Govt. of India.

The India Smart Grid Forum is a public-private consortium formed with the objective of helping Indian power sector to deploy smart grid technologies in an efficient, cost-effective, innovative and scalable manner.

The membership will allow IEEE-SA to attend forum meetings and participate in initiatives driven by the forum.

"The growing role in the Indian smart grid market is in line with the stated commitment of IEEE-SA to play a macro role in evolving the right ecosystem for effective smart grid implementation here. IEEE-SA will bring its deep standards related knowledge and arising perspectives to the deliberations at the forum and thus make it more holistic," IEEE-SA stated.

Commenting on the membership, Bill Ash, strategic programme manager, IEEE Standards Association, said, "We believe ISGF is the apt platform for the facilitating role we have chosen to play and are pleased to be the first association to become a member. The membership marks a significant step forward in our growing engagement with the Indian smart grid market. Beyond participation, we will actively contribute and help ISGF achieve the objectives it has set for itself."

IEEE-SA has launched key standards and guidelines such as the IEEE 2030 Smart Grid Interoperability Guide, the first such standard that aids interoperability of energy, information and communications technologies; IEEE 1547, the first guide for implementation of Microgrids and the IEEE 1901 standard for Broadband over Power Line.
