EMP provides technical assistance on smart grid-related topics to regulators and policymakers. As part of those technical assistance efforts, in 2010 EMP started developing a series of materials for orientation and reference purposes concerning various smart grid related topics. Given the rapid change in smart grid developments the material are not intended to address the latest and greatest in smart grid technologies; rather, they address core issues and provide links to key reference documents.
