SGMM Research at the SEI

For the SGMM, SEI research efforts focus on

  • providing governance over the model
  • promoting and advocating the widespread availability of the model
  • evolving and innovating the model
  • transitioning the model through education, training, awareness, and partnership

Our SGMM research partners provide unprecedented access to the industry and evolving trends in the electric power grid modernization. We are currently working with

SEI Smart Grid Research

We are applying the SEI's research strengths across various aspects of the smart grid challenge, including

  • critical infrastructure protection
  • risk assessment for the bulk electric system
  • security standards for "smart" technologies
  • interoperability standards for the smart grid.
  • engineering perspectives on software architecture
  • secure coding
  • resilience management
  • secure systems
  • security profiles to fill the procurement, development, and configuration needs of utilities and vendors
