”Industry statement for a conformed standardization framework enabling the large scale smart grid deployment”
STARGRID IS ORGANIZING this joint workshop with ETP SmartGrids by invitation on the 16th of May 2013in Brussels , to bring together promoters and stakeholders of various European smart grid industry initiatives in an ad-hoc round table aimed at:

  • Spreading awareness of the industry initiatives
  • Anticipating the impact of current standardization activities on the smart grid developers
  • Supporting industry in the coordination of efforts towards a cooperation framework
  • Raising awareness on standardization gaps preventing a large scale smart grid deployment
  • Identifying the key standardization requirements which have to be harmonized at International level


The workshop will comprise three sessions: “Smart Metering”, “Voltage Control and DG integration” and “Demand Response”.
Each Session includes a 30 min discussion on:

  • Standardisation requirements
  • Gaps and overlaps in existing and coming standards
  • Expected future developments

THE RESULTS OF the joint workshop will be published online on both STARGRID project and ETP SmartGrids websites (www.smartgrids.eu) as a consolidated stakeholder statement for an open consultation process. The outcome of the consultation process will then be forwarded to the European and international standardization bodies and regulators as well as to the European Commission.
