DIN German Institute for Standardization
DIN, the German Institute for Standardization, is the independent platform for standardization in Germany and worldwide. As a partner for industry, research and society as a whole, DIN plays a major role in paving the way for innovations to reach the market and advancing progress in innovative areas. More than 32,000 experts from industry, research, consumer protection and the public sector bring their expertise to work on standardization projects managed by DIN. The results of these efforts are market-oriented standards and specifications that promote global trade, encouraging rationalization, quality assurance and environmental protection as well as improving security and communication.
Short description of the project contribution
Standardization in the smart energy system
Within the energy industry, the interaction between numerous complex components is the absolute prerequisite for a well-functioning supply system. This is where standardization contributes.
DIN and DKE (Deutsche Kommission Elektrotechnik) will support the standardization activities of WindNODE to promote the connectivity, dissemination and uncomplicated market introduction of the results and developments of the WindNODE project and to lay the foundations for a digitized energy industry using electricity in Europe from renewable sources.
To this end, stocktaking of already existing relevant standards and specifications as well as the examination of relevant standardization activities with regard to their current implementation at various levels and their relevance to the project will be carried out.
In the next phase, standardization workshops will be held to identify possible subject areas and required actions (derived from the WindNODE activities).
Finally, corresponding standardization activities will be initiated based on the strategic classification of identified subjects in consultation with the WindNODE consortium. Here, DIN provides both the link to the relevant standard committees and the necessary infrastructure for carrying out any activities, e.g. within the framework of DIN specifications or CEN workshop agreements.
