Smart Grid Information Clearinghouse
This Smart Grid development project is managed by and run from the Virginia Tech Advanced Research Institute in Arlington, VA with assistance from the IEEE Power & Energy Society and EnerNex Corporation. The objective is to design, populate, manage and maintain a public Smart Grid Information Clearinghouse (SGIC) portal. Contents in the SGIC portal will include demonstration projects, use cases, standards, legislation, policy and regulation, lessons learned and best practices, and advanced topics dealing with research and development. The SGIC database will highlight the rapidly evolving opportunity to use electricity in an environmentally responsible way. It is envisioned that the SGIC portal will be the essential gateway that connects the smart grid community to the relevant sources of information that are currently scattered and distributed on the worldwide web.
