[#SmartGrid #スマートグリッド] RE: 誰がスマートグリッドの規格を決めているのか: 考え方を改める一枚の絵

今までNISTがスマートグリッドの規格化を強力に推進しているのかとばかり思っていましたが、この絵を見て実感したことが、複数の業界団体がこぞってスマートグリッド関係の仕様作りを推進しながら、NISTはその全体の調整、意識あわせ(これだけの業界が絡んでくるとそれだけでも相当な労力だと察するが)を行うことに注力している、という事が分かる。 

この絵にさらに加えるとすれば、IT業界が絡んでくる一連の規格である、と考えられる。
うん? もしかしたら、ITエリアは最後まで標準化されないまま進んでいってしまう可能性もあるなぁ。


Who Is and Is Not Making Smart Grid Standards

One organization at the center of Smart Grid standards formulation wants to be clear about one thing you may find less than intuitive. You should be aware that the National Institute of Standards and Technology, better known as NIST, is not making the standards for the Smart Grid.

That NIST is involved there is no doubt. See this from the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007: NIST has “primary responsibility to coordinate development of a framework that includes protocols and model standards for information management to achieve interoperability of smart grid devices and systems…”. In point of fact, NIST’s role in the process is to be the honest broker between warring tribes of standards bodies, lobbyists and advocates of all stripes. As the above slide makes plain, each home is a bloody standards battleground. This is not easy work for NIST, or any of the innumerable stakeholders.

But to repeat: NIST is not making the standards. It’s an open process and that’s a job for all of us. Just so you know.
