IEEE Standards Builds Trust on World Standards Day and Every Day
We rely on statistics reported to us through surveys or by news agencies to inform our understanding of our world. We rely on companies’ claims about their products to help us make decisions on which ones to purchase. But what helps build a sense of trust in technology? Standards.
Free Online Course Covers Future of Smart Grids
Utilities are changing in ways that we could not have predicted just a few years ago. Much of the changes are due to distributed energy resources (DERs), which combine several energy sources, such as solar, wind, and thermal, to deliver electricity to consumers. The advent of DERs has led to the emergence of new constructs—such as microgrids and retailers that can sell alternative energy—that have the potential to threaten traditional utilities.
Fast-moving Technologies need Bottom-up Standards
Technical standards typically are not something we think about: they simply make things work. Credit for this goes to the innovators who ensure that the technical standards needed to make many of our devices work together are robust and effective.
