Korea appointed Secretariat of International Smart Grid Action Network. For the next three years Korea will serve as Secretariat of the International Smart Grid Action Network (ISGAN), a mechanism for multilateral collaboration involving 20 member countries. As interim Secretariat since November 2010, Korea took the lead in supporting ISGAN's administrative processes and communications.

Recently, representatives of member governments and the International Energy Agency gathered in Seoul to kick off the first official meeting. Italy was chosen as Chair, with the United States and Korea as Vice Chairs. The representatives also assessed ISGAN's progress in four foundational projects: a global inventory of smart grid policies and activities; smart grid case studies; cost-benefit analyses and toolkits; and a synthesis of insights for decision makers.

"Korea will take a central role in facilitating a dynamic exchange of information to ensure the achievement of the shared goal: to advance the development and deployment of smarter electric grids around the world," Vice Minister for Trade and Energy Kim Junggwan said at a ceremony held to celebrate Korea's new role.

ISGAN was launched in July 2010 at the first Clean Energy Ministerial in Washington, D.C., and formally established under the IEA via an Implementing Agreement signed in April at the second Ministerial in Abu Dhabi.
