The central role of interoperability for a competitive, innovative and sustainable US power grid


Clarion Energy had a chat with Tony Fields, Chairman of the Board of Directors at DLMS, Edward J. Beroset, Principal Technical Leader at Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) and Paul Sisson, Smart Grids- Program Director at Avangrid Service Company at this year’s DISTRIBUTECH 2020.

The panel offers insights into the importance, but elusiveness of grid interoperability as the grid becomes ever-more sophisticated, to allow competition, innovation and adaptability to take root in the modern US energy market. With the approval of DLMS/COSEM as a communications standard by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI), the road to a modern, efficient, sustainable US power grid is in reach.
