The Global Smart Grid Federation was established in April 2010 to bring together Smart Grid initiatives from around the world.
Over the past several years, various countries have initiated projects and programs to explore the potential of the new generation of information- and communication-based technologies emerging across the power sector. As these efforts matured, formal public-private initiatives were formed. The first, in 2003, was the GridWise Alliance in the United States. It was followed by similar initiatives in the European Union, South Korea, Japan, Australia, Canada, India, and Ireland. Many other countries are in the formative stages of their own initiatives.
