EPRI: Electric Power Research Institute

Smart Grid Resource Center

Communications Interest Group

The Comms Interest Group serves utility communications directors and IT executives. The CIG provides a forum where new ideas and emerging technologies relevant to utility communications can be presented and discussed. The CIG also provides opportunities for members, whether or not they are IntelliGrid members, to provide feedback, direction, and prioritization for the IntelliGrid communications roadmap. Input from CIG members aids EPRIs mid-term and long-term strategic planning, and identifies gaps and opportunities for new collaborative research in communications. The CIG will offer webcasts on emerging communications standards and industry alliances. The CIG holds face to face meetings at EPRI Advisors meetings.

Membership in the Comms Interest Group is open by request. Please contact Tim Godfrey if you would like to join.
