The BIG-EU autumn meetings are underway here in Lucerne, Switzerland, starting with meetings of the technical and marketing working groups, followed by elections for the Executive and Advisory Boards, and on the second day a meeting of the joint Executive and Advisory boards.

The biggest topic on all the agendas is universal BACnet "certification" -- long a thorny topic due to differences between the systems in Europe and North America. But significant progress has been made. On the other hand, in meetings of the SGIP's Smart Grid Testing & Conformance Committee last week it appears that the North American certification scheme will soon change to become more like the European scheme.
