Peter Jensen has been nominated Chair of IEC Technical Committee 13 until June 14 2026. TC 13 prepares standards for electrical measurement and control of smart metering devices and systems forming part of smart grids as well as the standardization of test meter equipment and methods.
Jensen is a senior researcher at Electricité de France (EDF), where he has led smart metering projects and programmes, dealing notably with demand-side management, microgrids and smart grids. He has also provided research and operational support for EDF’s Linky smart meter programme in France and has led a similar programme in the UK.
Jensen has been an active member of IEC TC 113 for the last 12 years and was given the IEC 1906 award in 2016. The distinction recognizes exceptional achievement of an expert in a specific field, in this case standardization for smart metering. “I intend to develop the relationships of IEC TC 13 with other fellow committees both upstream to the substation level and downstream to the end-user level, as well as with other standardization organizations, members and companies involved in our standardization activities,” Jensen pledges.
Jensen is also a member of CENELEC TC 13 and of the IEC TC 13 mirror committee in France, AFNOR UF 13. He equally participates in the device language message specification (DLMS) group, which maintains, supports and promotes the DLMS/COSEM specification for data exchange for smart metering, smart energy management and related fields.
In other news, Walter Huck has been reappointed Chair of IEC TC 40: Capacitors and resistors for electronic equipment, until the 31st of January 2024.
