Subject: New OASIS Discussion List: smartgrid-discuss

OASIS members have requested that we open a new discussion list, regarding
one or more possible new OASIS SmartGrid Technical Committees. The proposal
conforms to our rules and is set forth below. Standards always are improved
by broad participation. OASIS encourages open discussions about possible new
TCs, by offering a dedicated e-mail list for 90 days, upon member request.
The address of this list will be:


Anyone, including OASIS members and non-members, may subscribe to this list
in order to discuss the merits and possibility of the proposed project.  The
list is now open, and can be joined by sending a message to:

smartgrid-discuss-subscribe@lists.oasis-open.org. [1]

The discussion list is governed by Section 2.1 of the OASIS TC Process [2],
and may last up to 90 days.  Typically, participants in the list will
determine whether there is sufficient interest to form an OASIS TC, and then
collaborate on a draft TC charter for submission. Only subscribers to the
list will have the ability to post to it. If you do not wish to subscribe,
but would like to monitor the discussion, archives of the list will be
visible at [3].

Please feel free to forward this announcement to any other appropriate
lists. OASIS is an open standards organization, and welcomes your feedback.
We look forward to assisting parties interested in joining the community of
implementers, technologists, academics and end-users contributing to open
standardization for e-business and information exchange.

(1) The name of the discussion list, which shall not be the same as the name
of the list in which the TC itself shall operate if formed.


(2) A preliminary statement of scope for the TC whose formation the list is
intended to discuss.

The focus will be on building consensus around the benefits of applying
interoperable enterprise and eCommerce standards to smart power grids and
articulating a way forward for the industry. Architectural and
implementation issues will be explored, with specific focus on market
interactions and interactions with smart buildings.

The goal of this discussion is to produce a clear action plan that will be
supported by all major stakeholders. The members of the list will explore
the formation of one or more OASIS technical committees under the new OASIS
Blue [*] initiative. Committee scope, charter, and deliverables will be
discussed. Everyone is encouraged to take part in this discussion
list--there is no restriction to OASIS members. Related conversations from
Grid-Interop and other forums will be merged and continued here.

Individual Membership affiliations of the three or more Eligible Persons
