The GridWise Alliance and the IEEE Power & Energy Society (IEEE PES) have formed an agreement whereby the organizations will work collaboratively on smart grid-related issues.

"This agreement to collaborate will strengthen the engineering basis of our group," says Katherine Hamilton, president of the GridWise Alliance. "IEEE PES has worked diligently to ensure professional engineers are appropriately educated as our utilities build their smart grid programs. IEEE PES has provided significant thought leadership on smart grid and can help provide a technical foundation to the policies we advocate."

The groups say they intend to collaborate on a number of issues and establish a "firm connection between the electric power and energy industries through shared educational materials, policy proposals and smart grid research projects."
