P. Boss, Geneva (CH)

Relation with IEC SG3 and
CEN/CENELEC

‘Focus
Group’ on Smart Grid


May 2011, IEC SG3 accept CIGRE as observer


Mark Waldron joint the IEC SG3 meeting in Melbourne/AU on Oct 2011


Beginning 2011, CEN/CENELEC issued his final report. Some amendments
are still in discussion.


All the work related to smart grid within CEN/CENELEC has been transferred
to specific WG with high level of expertise.


Work in progress within CEN/CENELEC


The JWG prepares a report including global issues like:




Basic idea of a smart grid / Political background in Europe


Aim of a European Roadmap / Activities around the world


and a serie of recommendations as:



Terminology / Glossary


Grid architecture & System Aspects


Communication / Information Security


Generation / Transmission / Distribution


Smart Metering


Industry


Home and Building Automation

CEN/CENELEC considerations related to the
transmission grid


Key areas to be considered:



Grid access

(enabling the network to integrate grid users with new
requirement)


Grid observability

(enhancing the observability and the monitoring of the
transmission grid)


Grid security of supply and optimization

(ensuring network security of
supply in a more complex and optimized grid)


Grid planning of the future network

(planning of the future network)


HVDC grid architecture


Smart assets


Offshore equipment (new)

About IEC / SG 3
-

Strategic Group on Smart Grid




As for CENELEC, the identification of gaps within the various IEC TCs is needed



Development of a reference architecture as raised by CENELEC



Interfacing with other disciplines (i.e. telecommunication ITU)



Long term perspective for future standardization within IEC (5 yrs. and 15 yrs. horizon)



Take advantages of use cases to promote IEC work progress



Situation in Korea, within NIST, ITU and ISO regarding Smart Grid were presented



External bodies like CIGRE are accepted now within IEC SG 3

About IEC

A project committee (PC) 118 ‘ Smart Grid user interface’ has been set up in 2011
todevelop Smart Grid user interface standards. A PC is formed when there is a need
to be able to deal with a specific task that is limited in scope but that does not fit into
the work of any existing IEC TC. Compared to a TC, a PC has a simplified structure
with no subdivision into WGs (Working Groups). PC 118's task is to concentrate on
the exchange between the demand
-
side of smart equipment and the grid and the
relevant power demand response.

Conclusions


CEN/CENELEC and IEC continue to develop contacts with key players like
NIST, ITU, ISO etc


IEC decided to work closely with Korea, China, Germany, etc and create an
organization within IEC on the base of ‘use cases’. This organization of ‘use
cases’ shall facilitate the implementation in other region and to build a
glossary.


All standardization bodies like IEC, CEN/CENELEC and others show a large
interest to avoid overlapping or ‘wheel re
-
invention’ effect


CIGRE shall continue to play an important role as discussion forum (session
papers, colloquium, etc) to present state
-
of
-
art practices, identification of
needs for standardization through WG activities.


CIGRE experts are invited to joint WG within IEC, CEN/CENELEC, etc
through their national organisation. No seat in such organizations can be
reserved for CIGRE.

EU policy



In April 2009, EU adopted the Climate
-
Energy Legislative Package setting the
following key objectives to be achieved by 2020:



• cutting greenhouse gas emissions by at least 20% with respect





to 1990 (30% if other developed countries commit to




comparable cuts);



• increasing to 20% the share of renewable energies (wind, solar,




biomass, etc) in overall energy consumption (currently about



8.5%).

A third objective of the European energy policy was established by the European
Parliament in January 2008:



• saving 20% of the projected energy consumption by improving




energy efficiency.


Consistently with these 20/20/20 objectives for 2020, more ambitious objectives are
being developed by the European Commission for 2050.
