On the occasion of the European Conference on Smart Grid Standardization Achievements, which took place in Brussels this week (on 28 January), the European Standards Organizations–CEN, CENELEC and ETSI–presented the latest results of their joint work to prepare and develop the standards that are needed to accelerate the deployment of the next generation of electricity networks, known as 'Smart Grids'.

The European Conference on Smart Grid Standardization Achievements was organized by the European Commission (DG ENERGY) in Brussels on 28 January, in partnership with the three European Standards Organizations (ESOs) – CEN (European Committee for Standardization), CENELEC (European Committee for Electrotechnical Standardization) and ETSI (European Telecommunications Standards Institute).

The Conference was opened by Günther Oettinger, the EU Commissioner responsible for Energy, who spoke about the importance of standardization for developing the new generation of electricity networks, known as 'Smart Grids'. He welcomed the fact that the responsible authorities as well as the competent standards organizations in Europe are cooperating closely with their counterparts in other parts of the world, including North America.
