   The GridWise Architecture Council (GWAC) is a team of industry leaders who are shaping the guiding principles, or architecture, of a highly intelligent and interactive electric system—one ripe with decision-making information exchange and market-based opportunities.  This architecture will provide the guidelines for interaction between participants and interoperability between technologies and systems.

The GBA thanks the GWAC members for inviting us to speak at their council meeting and for sharing the recording of the session.


The GridWise® Architecture Council (GWAC) was formed by the U.S. Department of Energy to promote and enable interoperability among the many entities that interact with the nation’s electric power system.  The GWAC members are a balanced and respected team representing the many constituencies of the electricity supply chain and users.  The GWAC maintains a broad perspective of the GridWise vision and provides industry guidance and tools that make it an available and practical resource for the various implementations of Smart Grid technology.
