District Energy System: ANSI Seeks Comments on Proposed New ISO Technical Committee


As the U.S. member body to the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) is seeking comments on a proposal for a new ISO technical committee on “District Energy System.”

SAC, the ISO member for China, submitted the proposal for a new ISO technical committee with the following scope statement:

"Standardization of planning, operation, maintenance, optimization and application of the integrated district energy system with multiple energy carriers." The work excludes: specific energy (electricity or non-electricity) technologies, information technologies or control technologies within the scope of other ISO or International Electrotechnical Commission technical committees.

Review the proposal for additional information and submit comments to Steven Cornish, ANSI senior director of international policy and strategy, [email protected], by close of business on June 4, 2021. Based on input received from U.S. stakeholders, a recommended ANSI position and any comments will be developed and presented at the ANSI ISO Committee (AIC) for approval before ISO's voting deadline of July 15, 2021.

ANSI has published an explanatory information document outlining the process used to develop U.S. positions in issues and activities under consideration by ISO and IEC.
