The “Tailored Trustworthy Spaces: Solutions for the Smart Grid” workshop was organized by the Federal Networking and Information Technology Research and Development (NITRD) Program with support from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the Office of Electricity Delivery & Energy Reliability of the Department of Energy (DOE/OE). The workshop took place July 18-20, 2011 in Arlington, Virginia.

The Tailored Trustworthy Spaces (TTS) workshop convened approximately fifty researchers from the power sector, academia, and government to pursue the following objectives:

  • Review key use cases where TTS capabilities could be a significant factor in improving the delivery of the Smart Grid services and capabilities
  • Identify important research needs and objectives to guide the development of TTS capabilities in the Smart Grid
  • Identify opportunities for pilot projects
  • Inform Federal government planning for R&D activities in TTS

The workshop:

  • Provided input to help refine Federal cybersecurity R&D agenda to more effectively prioritize TTS research opportunities and challenges
  • Supported Federal priorities in Smart Grid cybersecurity and interoperability
  • Identified exemplary Smart Grid use cases for future TTS-oriented R&D activities
  • Promoted exchange of information on TTS research challenges and goals and explored common TTS needs, requirements, and use cases

The workshop report summarizes the workshop’s findings and suggests priority areas for further R&D activities.
