The TRM specifies several milestones:
2015 - Robust & resilient power delivery system and enhanced electricity products & services

TNB Smart Grid was embarked on November 2009. TNB has decided to implement Smart Grid Test Systems as demonstration projects. Three sites (an industrial area, a commercial centre and a green field area) have been identified for Smart Grid Test Systems.

To drive the implementation of the smart grid test systems, the TNB Smart Grid Steering Committee was formed and chaired by the COO. The committee is made up of representatives from the Research, Transmission, Distribution, Corporate and ICT departments.

Prospects for smart partnerships and research opportunities include in the following areas:
ICT infrastructure: To identify and evaluate options for the last mile communication and information system and recommend suitable option for smart grid applications.
Control architecture: To evaluate centralised versus de-centralised architecture considering a nation wide smart grid applications.

The event is hosted by Metropolitan Electricity Authority, Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand, Provincial Electricity Authority and The Energy Regulatory Commission of Thailand.
