SAN JOSE, Calif. -- The IEEE has launched a new Web site that 
consolidates information about smart electric grids from it various 
societies. The portal is one of many activities from an IEEE smart grid 
initiative coordinating the organization's work on the transition to 
digital, networked power systems and services.

The smart grid is "so interdisciplinary," said Wanda Reder, chair of the 
IEEE Smart Grid Task Force and former president of the IEEE Power & 
Energy Society. "We have the gamut covered in technical interests, but 
we needed a way to facilitate communications between our many entities 
to link information on all the conferences, papers and standards we have 
in this area," she added.

The Web site lists many of the estimated 100 existing IEEE standards 
related to smart grids. It also includes pointers to the IEEE 2030 group 
started last year that aims to release a draft guide to smart grid 
design in early 2011.

The 2030 group will conduct its next meeting January 26-29 in Detroit, 
working with the SAE J2293 Task Force working on issues around electric
