IS-2010-179: Accelerating Successful Smart Grid Pilots

This paper from the World Economic Forum explores how to motivate the creation of sustained pilot projects for electric smart grids.  This report found about 90 pilots mostly focusing on advanced metering infrastructure (remote meter reading, data collection, and data management).  “Challenges remain around data privacy, security, interoperability and standards.”  “The majority [of pilot projects] still face a number of barriers that are reducing their ability to achieve their full potential.”  Recommendations for effective pilot programs are presented.
