The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) recommends a common semantical understanding of data elements to implement the Smart Grid. In draft version 2.0 of its framework and roadmap for Smart Grid interoperability standards, NIST proposed a conceptual model of the Smart Grid. A Smart Grid truly operating as envisioned is heavily dependent on the consistency of semantic models.
We found this target on Fierce Content IT in their article, “NIST Smart Grid roadmap calls for common data semantics.” The Smart Grid Architecture Committee, composed of industry and government officials, will work on definitions of semantic concepts and methodologies while they complete the final proposal.
