HGF showcases further advances in the smart grid sector
The HomeGrid Forum (HGF) is continuing to drive forward developments of G.hn technology that aims to revolutionise the future of smart cities. At the virtual 24th IEEE International Symposium on Power Line Communications (ISPLC), HGF chair of the contributions working group Marcos Martinez, unveiled the Forum’s latest work on advancing G.hn for industrial and smart grid applications around the world.
The Forum’s participation in the virtual event followed the recent addition of major energy provider E.ON as the latest member to join HGF – strengthening its position within the smart energy and smart city sectors.
“IEEE gave us a fantastic opportunity to share our latest G.hn developments and its applications within the smart grid industry, for instance, creating a smart meter gateway and providing a medium voltage backbone,” HGF president Len Dauphinee says.
“We are continuing to expand G.hn use for applications such as smart lighting, smart traffic lights and charging stations – showing just how game-changing G.hn is with its facilitation of secure, real-time data communication.”
HGF believes it has a huge role to play in ensuring the future success of G.hn with its world-renowned certification process, which ensures interoperability, high-performance and compliance between the multitude of devices within the industry.
“This is an exciting time for these technologies and to be able to see where the developments are headed really solidifies what we have been working towards over the last twelve months and we look forward to continuing the great work throughout the rest of 2020,” Len concludes.
