Abstract:

The Smart Grid Maturity Model SGMM is a business tool stewarded by the Software Engineering Institute at Carnegie Mellon University. It was originally developed by electric power utilities for use by electric power utilities. The model provides a framework for understanding the current extent of smart grid deployment and capability within an electric utility, a context for establishing strategic objectives and implementation plans in support of grid modernization, and a means to evaluate progress over time toward those objectives. The SGMM is composed of eight domains and six maturity levels as detailed in this document, which contains the full definition and description of the model. Introductory material to aid in understanding the purpose and use of the SGMM is also provided. The primary audiences for the SGMM, and for this document, are electric power utilities that are seeking guidance related to the modernization of their operations and practices for delivering electricity. The audience also includes any related stakeholders for such utilities. Currently, the model is better suited for utilities with transmission and distribution operations than for pure generation utilities.
