HomeGrid Forum logoThe HomeGrid Forum said it will be working more closely on Smart Grids with the ZigBee Alliance.

A new liaison agreement will extend the HomeGrid Forum's collaboration on the development of ZigBee's Smart Energy standard development. The goal is to enable consumers and utilities to use ZigBee Smart Energy version 2.0 wireless or wired networks in Smart Grids.

Both organizations will collaborate on ensuring ZigBee Smart Energy version 2 and HomeGrid Forum's ITU-T G.hn and G.hnem standards can be used in a wide variety of smart grid usage models.

When finalized, applications such as AMI (Advanced Metering Infrastructure), Demand Response (DR), Plug-in Electric Vehicles (PEV) and any other Smart Grid application/service that needs a reliable Home Area Network (HAN) or distribution/access network will benefit.
