Meeting Description:

The GMLC Interoperability Technical Meeting is being held in partnership with the GMLC Interoperability project and SGIP. There are no fees associated with attending this meeting.

The GMLC Interoperability project works with industry to establish a strategic vision of interoperability for grid modernization.  This second meeting with industry participants, shares progress and solicits feedback on three work products:  a strategic vision for interoperability, a tool to help measure interoperability (i.e., an interoperability maturity model), and a methodology for developing roadmaps to move from today’s situation toward the vision of an interactive grid characterized by easy to integrate devices and systems.  In addition to providing valuable feedback, attendees will be asked to help shape future work directions toward achieving tangible results.

Topics to be explored include:

  • Defining criteria and measuring interoperability
  • Application of roadmap methodology and tools in specific grid-related ecosystems
  • Trial candidates for roadmap methodology
  • Approaches to encourage interoperability advancement including model language for procurement specifications, cost/benefits of interoperability, and demonstrations of advanced interoperability capabilities
