Associations, Federations and Special Interest Groups

Aware of the importance of international cooperation for the advancement of science, INSTICC works closely together with several other national and international associations and is proud to welcome them as partners in its activities or to arrange initiatives in cooperation with them.

While several forms of partnership are welcome, INSTICC places special value in "Technical Co-Sponsorships", by means of which both associations support each other from a scientific perspective for their mutual benefit. Additionally, in this case, members of partner organizations benefit from the same registration conditions as INSTICC members.

OSGP Alliance


OSGP Alliance, founded in 2006 as the Energy Services Network Association (ESNA), is an independent global, not-for-profit association that promotes the adoption of the Open Smart Grid Protocol (OSGP) and related services and infrastructure for smart grid applications. Members include utilities, software, hardware and service providers, and solution integrators that share a common goal and vision for promoting open standards for energy demand side management, smart grid and smart metering systems. 

OSGP Alliance promotes the change in perspective of the current metering business, from selling isolated units, into offering interoperable smart meter management systems as an embedded element in the total value chain of energy sales and distribution. In addition, AMM, based on OSGP AMI architecture, offers added value in achieving the political objectives such as; saving energy and reducing CO2 blast and ensuring stability of the grid. Last but not least it will also contribute to more consumer satisfaction, in supporting a better understanding of energy consumption and as basis for a competitive energy purchase.
