The Global Smart Grid Federation is committed to creating smarter, cleaner electricity systems around the world. By linking the major public-private stakeholders and initiatives of participating countries, the federation shares practices, identifies barriers and solutions, fosters innovation, and addresses key technical and policy issues. These and other activities help member organizations initiate changes to their countries' electric systems to enhance security, increase flexibility, reduce emissions, and maintain affordable, reliable, and accessible power.
In addition, the Global Smart Grid Federation works with the International Smart Grid Action Network as well as with national and international government policymakers to address the broad challenges of deploying smarter grids. This nexus provides a forum for communication and collaboration, which will advance smart grids around the world and facilitate consensus-building within the international community to address electricity system and climate change concerns.
