Distribution GIS and Grid Model Data Management

Building the foundation for enterprise-wide distribution grid model management

Effective management of geospatial and grid model data is one of the major challenges facing
electric distribution utilities today. This project will address the issue by:

  • Defining an industry architecture for distribution grid model data management
  • Promoting industry understanding of the architecture and vendor product support for it
  • Providing participating utilities with actionable strategies for improving GIS data and the
    grid model data derived from it
  • Advancing the data exchange standards to fully support distribution grid models
