Today we would like to invite you to check out the IEC White Papers area of our website. Our White Papers are published by the Market Strategy Board (MSB) to present recommendations from industry leaders on specific topic relevant to our standards but published in a different format.
The MSB (Market Strategy Board) was set up by the IEC to identify the principal technological trends and market needs in the IEC’s fields of activity. It sets strategies to maximize input from primary markets and establishes priorities for the technical and conformity assessment work of the IEC, improving the IEC’s response to the needs of innovative and fast-moving markets.
To accomplish its work, the MSB sets up special working groups that are dissolved after they have completed their work.
The MSB comprises 15 chief technology officers as members appointed from industry, and (ex officio) the IEC Officers.
We highly recommend our most recent IEC White Papers on the following topics:
- Orchestrating infrastructure for sustainable Smart Cities explains what it needs to move cities to greater smartness; the what, who and how of smart city development.
- Internet of Things: Wireless Sensor Networks discusses the use and evolution of Wireless Sensor Networks within the wider context of the Internet of Things.
- Microgrids for disaster preparedness and recovery considers preparation for and recovery from major electricity outages, with a focus on customer-side measures. Microgrids are a solution to many of the issues identified in the disaster review.
