NIST Framework and Roadmap for Smart Grid Interoperability Standards, Release 3.0 (Sept. 2014) (full-text).

NOTE: Earlier releases of this report are available at

Overview Edit

This 3.0 framework updates the plan for transforming the nation's aging electric power system into an interoperable smart grid network that will integrate information and communication technologies with the power-delivery infrastructure, enabling two-way flows of energy and communications. The Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007 established a goal to modernize the nation's electricity system and assigned to NIST the primary responsibility to coordinate development of a framework to achieve interoperability of smart grid devices and systems.

The document first appeared in January 2010 and was last updated in February 2012 to its 2.0 version. The 3.0 version was needed in part because of recent progress in grid modernization, including the following developments:

  • Testing and certification is taking on increased urgency as industry reaches consensus on the underlying standards for the smart grid, and the 3.0 framework includes an expanded discussion of this topic. Version 2 of the "Interoperability Process Reference Manual" provides a guide for those setting up new test programs or improving existing ones.
