Emphasis is placed on providing an overview of the on-going smart grid projects and the deployment experience derived from project implementation. Information about smart grid projects worldwide is presented by their geographic locations and project categories. Examples of deployment experience information on the SGIC web portal are discussed. Available deployment experience information is related to use cases, lessons learned, cost-benefit analyses and business cases. Then, this paper presents opportunities for contributing smart grid related content via the SGIC online content submission platform.
