> Voting on 14 standards for inclusion in the SGIP’s Catalog of Standards (CoS) completed on January, 31, 2013.  These standards were introduced to the Governing Board at the December SGIP Face to Face meeting in Irving, Texas at Grid-Interop.  The CoS process requires the Governing Board (now named the Board of Directors in the transitioned organization) to vote on each standard for inclusion.  The voting results are then provided to the SGIP Plenary (now called Members) as recommendations.  The voting process requires a quorum of greater than 50% of the eligible members to participate with 75% majority vote for the inclusion of the standard.
> Thirteen of the 14 candidate standards were voted into the CoS, bringing the total number of standards currently in the CoS to 56.  The newly added standards include:
> Energy Services Provider Interface (ESPI) builds on the NAESB Energy Usage Information (EUI) Model and, subject to the Governing Documents and any requirements of the Applicable Regulatory Authority, will help enable Retail Customers to share Energy Usage Information with Third Parties who have acquired the right to act in this role. ESPI will provide a consistent method for Retail Customers to authorize a Third Party to gain access to Energy Usage Information.
> Establishes voluntary Model Business Practices for Third Party access to Smart Meter-based information. These business practices are intended only to serve as flexible guidelines rather than requirements, with the onus on regulatory authorities or similar bodies to establish the actual requirements.
> IEC 62351 Parts 1 – 7
> The scope of the IEC 62351 series is information security for power system control operations. The primary objective is to undertake the development of standards for security of the communication protocols defined by IEC TC 57, specifically the IEC 60870-5 series, the IEC 60870-6 series, the IEC 61850 series, the IEC 61970 series, and the IEC 61968 series.  Another objective is to undertake the development of standards and/or technical reports on end-to-end security issues.

> ITU-T G.9960
> (Unified High-Speed Wireline-based Home Networking Transceivers – System Architecture and PHY Layer Specification (G.hn/PHY)) specifies the system architecture and physical (PHY) layer for wireline-based home networking transceivers capable of operating over premises wiring including inside telephone wiring, coaxial cable, and power line wiring. It complements the data link layer (DLL) specification in Recommendation ITU-T G.9961.
> ITU-T G.9972
> This standard specifies a coexistence mechanism for networking transceivers capable of operating over electrical power lines. The coexistence mechanism allows compliant devices on the same power line wiring to coexist with other devices implementing G.9972.
> NISTIR 7862
> Power Line Communication (PLC) systems provide a bi-directional communication platform capable of delivering data for a variety of Smart Grid applications such as home energy management and intelligent meter reading and control. One benefit of applying power line communication on power grid is that it provides an infrastructure that is much more comprehensive and widespread than other wired/wireless alternatives. The use of PLC in the home network enables home appliances and home energy management systems to communicate with no additional wiring and minimal configuration by the home owners.
> IEEE 1901-2010
> Defines a standard for high-speed communication devices via electric power lines, so-called broadband over power line (BPL) devices. This standard focuses on the balanced and efficient use of the power line communications channel by all classes of BPL devices, defining detailed mechanisms for coexistence and interoperability between different BPL devices, and assuring that desired bandwidth and quality of service may be delivered.
> The final count concluded that more work was required on consensus agreement between the Association of Edison Illuminating Companies (AEIC) and the electric meter manufacturing stakeholder community on its “Smart Grid/AEIC AMI Interoperability Standard Guidelines for ANSI C12.19 End Device Communications and Supporting Enterprise Devices, Networks and Related Accessories.”  The objective of this Priority Action Plan (PAP) led activity was to develop a smaller set of data tables that could meet the needs of most utilities and simplify the meter procurement process.  The AEIC had previously developed a guideline in 1998 to help utilities use the ANSI C12.19-1997 standard, and the PAP-05 Working Group accepted the AEIC offer to revise its guidelines to meet the PAP objectives.
> In the coming weeks, the SGIP Board of Directors will consider whether a significant “standards gap” remains, and may propose establishing a new Priority Action Plan (PAP) to address it.  SGIP members are encouraged to provide input on a potential PAP proposal and interested non-members are encouraged to join the SGIP to participate.
