Well originally it was created by six utilities, Ray Jones and IBM and APQC, the not-for-profit research institute who facilitated the work. The utilities involved were four in the U.S. CenterPoint Energy, Progress Energy, Pepco Holdings, and Sempra Energy pretty much from one end of the country to the other. Also DONG Energy in Denmark NDPL, which is North Deli Power and Light in India and Country Energy in Australia. These organizations, along with IBM and APQC, wanted to do something with Smart Grid. They knew they were doing a lot of work in this area, but they wanted to figure out ways that they could do it even better. So they initially put it together so that they could determine whats working for them and whats not. Could they share something that theyve learned Could they use it as a guide to use best practices that were found in one organization and could be copied in another
