The  OGC Energy & Utilities Domain Working Group (E&U DWG) was chartered last year in acknowledgement of the significant and far reaching global opportunity that collaboration can play in maximizing the value of information technology for the international Energy and Utilities industry. This working group is focused on identifying the relative value of communicating "where" in a broad range of decision making and analytics scenarios in the Energy and Utilities ecosystem. The scope of the working group’s interoperability efforts includes data and systems that are traditionally associated with "smart grid," as well as interoperability needs related to oil and gas pipeline safety, smarter cities, integrated community energy strategies, energy efficient buildings, reduced power outage restoration times and other energy and utility activities. 

About the OGC

The OGC is an international consortium of more than 475 companies, government agencies, research organizations and universities participating in a consensus process to develop publicly available geospatial standards. OGC standards support interoperable solutions that "geo-enable" the Web, mainstream IT, and wireless and location-based services. OGC standards empower technology developers to make geospatial information and services accessible and useful with any application that needs to be geospatially enabled. Visit the OGC website at
