GridWise Architecture Council
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 guidelines for interaction between participants and interoperability between technologies and systems.
The Council is neither a design team, nor a standards making body. Our role is to help identify areas for standardization that allow significant levels of interoperation between system components. We are helping to outline a philosophy of inter-system operation that preserves the freedom to innovate, design, implement and maintain each organization's
portion of the electrical system.
For more information on the Architecture Council's mission, organizational structure, and progress see the Mission & Structure page.
