TOGAF and Smart Grid Enterprise Architecture

Stephan Amsbary
Director of Utility Enterprise Architecture, EnerNex, US

This presentation discusses the need for Enterprise Architecture methodology for Smart Grid (SG). SG's complexity and continuing evolution requires a systematic approach to understand all its implications. TOGAF is being used for the USA government SG interoperability and architectural efforts (i.e., National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) SGIP, and the DoE government-wide acquisition contracts (GWAC). Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) Intelligrid efforts, use cases and various SG roadmaps fold well into TOGAF framework thereby ensuring previous and ongoing SG's functional efforts are fully utilized. This discussion will review how TOGAF is being used in SG government efforts as well as a way to include existing SG use-cases and roadmaps into the Architecture Development Method (ADM) of TOGAF.
