Getting to grips with smart grid communications – Smart Energy International Webinar
On March 11th, 2020, Miguel Ángel Sánchez Fornié (Secretary General of the PRIME Alliance) participated as a speaker in the webinar organized by Smart Energy International focused on the communication technology in the smart grid.
This webinar highlights the smart grid as “an electric network capable of two way electricity and data flows that can detect, react to changes in the network, that has self-healing capabilities and allows electricity customers to actively participate in the system.”
Mr Sánchez Fornié highlights the importance of the smart grid bearing in mind two global realities of today: climate change and digital transformation. Today’s energy management needs to become more efficient, which smart meters and the smart grid can help achieve with telecommunications.

About PRIME Alliance
PRIME (PoweRline Intelligent Metering Evolution) Alliance AISBL was created in 2009 to define an open and future-proofed communications PLC-based infrastructure to support large scale smart metering and other smart grid deployments. The PRIME Alliance has attracted key industry players, including Sponsoring Members El Sewedy, ZIV, Renesas and Corinex. The goal of the Alliance is to provide a framework in which the smart metering and smart grid industry have access to open detailed technical specifications in order to develop fully interoperable solutions, allowing multiple vendors to be operational within the same distribution network in one common system architecture. Detailed technical specs include Physical PHY layer and Medium Access Control MAC layer specifications.
The PRIME Alliance provides a forum for the definition, maintenance and support of an open and comprehensive standard for narrowband power line for Smart Grid products and services. The mission of the Alliance is to accelerate the demand for products and services based on this worldwide standard and promote the broad adoption and use of the specification while certifying multi-vendor interoperability and compatibility with the global standard. The Alliance is open to all potential partners who agree to actively support and promote an open and public specification for the benefit of the end-user and all industry stakeholders.
