Canadian Grid Gets Smarter

Dec. 8, 2011

Approximately a year ago, the Canadian Electricity Association (CEA) recently released version 1 of its CEA Guideline for the Selection and Use of SMART GRID Standards and revised it in June 2011. The 8 page document contains eight fundamental principles and fifteen elective criteria to provide their members (predominantly electric utilities) guidance in picking the right standards to use when modernizing Canada’s electrical grid.

Because of the integration of the US and Canadian electrical grid there is a close relationship between the work of CEA and NERC (North American Reliability Council) especially when it comes to standards and products.
