Informing a Vision for Smart Grid Transformation
Utility managers can use the SGMM to inform their utility's vision
for smart grid transformation and chart its progress toward
implementation. Developed by utilities for utilities, the SGMM is hosted
by the SEI as a resource for industry transformation, with input from a
broad array of stakeholders.
Individuals from utility industry service providers can apply to
become SEI-certified SGMM Navigators, trained to guide utilities through
a process of informing their strategy and vision for smart grid
transformation. These industry experts know that making the grid smarter
is a priority, and they know how to do it.
By working with SEI-Certified SGMM Navigators, electric utilities around the world are using the SGMM to
- inform a shared smart grid vision
- facilitate communication among stakeholders using a common language
- prioritize options and support decision making
- track their smart grid implementation over time
- compare their results with other SGMM users
SEI Software Engineering Research for the Smart Grid
Architecture at all scales: The SEI's Software
Solutions Division (SSD) is applying its architecture-centric
engineering perspectives to the smart grid, at the level of software,
systems, systems-of-systems and Ultra-Large-Scale systems.
Cybersecurity: The SEI's CERT Division is addressing
cybersecurity challenges of the smart grid by applying its experience
in secure coding, resilience management, secure systems, and other
areas. The CERT Division and SSD are collaborating to develop actionable
security guidance for smart grid applications in the form of security
profiles. This work is part of the Advanced Security Acceleration
Project for Smart Grid (ASAP SG), a public-private collaboration.
The SGMM's eight domains provide a framework for understanding the
current extent of smart grid deployment and a context for establishing
strategic objectives and implementation plans.
