The Smart Grid Interoperability Panel (SGIP), a not-for-profit group dedicated to accelerating standards harmonization and advancing interoperability of smart grid devices and systems, has begun searching for an executive director to lead the organization.

According to the SGIP, its board of directors has worked closely with existing leadership as the SGIP has transitioned from a federally funded entity to an industry-financed collaborative that retains a close working relationship with the government. The creation of the executive director position is a key milestone in the ongoing growth of the SGIP, the group adds.

The SGIP executive director will be responsible for all aspects of the organization's operation and execution, including strategy, outreach, recruitment, and program management and delivery.
