The IEEE Smart Grid Web Portal is an online resource that to date has been accessed by over 50 000 Smart Grid professionals, academics and other interested individuals from around the world. Launched in January of 2010, the IEEE Smart Grid Web Portal is a resource that converges and organizes all Smart Grid-related IEEE events, activities, news and assets into one place-accessible to anyone, anywhere in the world. Users can use the portal to view all upcoming conferences, browse publications and standards, access educational material and view various other IEEE-related content. The portal makes use of an illustrative conceptual model to show how the technical domains in the Smart Grid are interrelated. A novel application of this model provides an interactive gateway feature that allows users to navigate Smart Grid content based upon technical area of interest and filter it based upon date of creation. This paper describes the IEEE Smart Grid Web Portal for the purpose of orienting new users to the portal and details how individuals in the Smart Grid community-in particular those outside North America - can contribute to on-going relevance of this useful resource.
