ISGAN Annex 1 Project Catalogue Part 2

ISGAN Annex 1 Project Catalogue Part 2

The ISGAN Annex 1 Project Catalogue provides a global view of smart grid activities and investments to allow identification of remaining gaps along with opportunities for targeted collaboration or further investment by ISGAN Participants. As of 28 March 2013, the inventory had a total of 98 smart grid projects from 17 ISGAN Participants. The inventory will continue to be updated at an as-needed interval to be determined by ISGAN Participants. Part 2 organizes projects by contribution to policy goals that relate to smart grid drivers.
