NIST Framework and Roadmap for Smart Grid Interoperability Standards, Release 1.0 (Jan. 2010) (NIST Special Publication 1108) (full-text).

Note: Later releases of this report are available at

Overview Edit

The report describes a high-level conceptual reference model for the Smart Grid, identifies 75 existing standards that can be used now to support Smart Grid development, identifies 15 high-priority gaps and harmonization issues (in addition to cyber security) for which new or revised standards and requirements are needed, documents action plans with aggressive timelines by which designated standards-setting organizations (SSOs) are tasked to fill these gaps, and describes the strategy to establish requirements and standards to help ensure Smart Grid cyber security.[1]

This Framework document is the first installment in an ongoing standards and harmonization process. Ultimately, this process will deliver the hundreds of communication protocols, standard interfaces, and other widely accepted and adopted technical specifications necessary to build an advanced, secure electric power grid with two-way communication and control capabilities. The NISTIR expands upon the discussion of cyber security included in the Framework document. The NISTIR is a starting point and a foundation. CSWG will continue to provide additional guidance as the Framework document is updated and expanded to address testing and certification, the development of an overall architecture, and as additional standards are identified.

Given the transcending importance of cyber security to Smart Grid performance and reliability, this document “drills down” from the initial release of the "NIST Framework and Roadmap," providing the technical background and additional details that can inform organizations in their risk management efforts to securely implement Smart Grid technologies.
