TC20 Smart Grids, Renewables, Electric Vehicles and Energy Efficiency

NSAI ETC TC 20 Smart Grids, Renewables, Electric Vehicles and Energy Efficiency


NSAI ETC TC20 was established to coordinate the Irish input to the standardization work of the IEC in the areas of smart grids (incl. interoperability, transmission, distribution, metering, consumer connection and cyber security), renewable energy, electric road vehicles and energy efficiency.

TC20 also participates in the development of CENELEC European Standards or EN's in the same areas of technology. EN's are, as far as possible, based on the corresponding IEC Standards. Once an EN is published by CENELEC, it is adopted without change by the NSAI as a voluntary Irish Standard.

Certain work falling under the scope of TC20 is subject to EC and EFTA mandates to the European Standards Bodies (including CENELEC) to develop standards in support of European policies and legislation.
