The Smart Grid Maturity Model (SGMM)
is a management tool that helps utilities plan smart grid implementation, prioritize options, and measure progress. Developed by utilities for utilities, the model is hosted by the SEI as a resource for industry transformation with the support of the U.S. Department of Energy and input from a broad array of stakeholders.
What services can SEI Partners for SGMM provide?
As an SEI Partner for SGMM, your organization sponsors SEI-Certified SGMM Navigators to guide utilities through the SGMM navigation process. The SGMM Navigator works with the utility’s smart grid team to complete the SGMM Compass Survey on a consensus basis – promoting valuable internal discussion of current status and shared objectives. After scoring and analyzing the survey, a navigator leads a second workshop to review the survey results and use them to set consensus aspirations for an agreed planning horizon – and to discuss related motivations, obstacles, and required actions.
