Currently, several smart grid efforts in US and Europe are gaining momentum. Even if there are different focuses in US and Europe on what is known as the smart grid, all agree on the fact, that standardization is a key issue. Hence, a lot of studies and roadmaps pick standardization in the context of smart grids out as a central theme. The various approaches are concentrating on different core areas, depending on the circumstances in which they were elaborated. However, no overview aligning these approaches exists. This contribution takes all relevant approaches up to now into account, which give concrete recommendations for smart grid standards. The approaches will be aligned, and a set of core standards will be identified to point out the most important fields for future research and development. Furthermore, the IEC TC 57 Seamless Integration Architecture SIA will be introduced and extended by future standards, which were identified as core standards and existing work not yet included in the SIA.
