The WAND Electric Utilities Taxonomy - Next in the Utilities Suite

The next taxonomy in our Utilities Suite is the WAND Electric Utilities Taxonomy 

It is designed to provide terms specific to Electric Companies and should be used in conjunction with the WAND Utilities Taxonomy.

You may be familiar with our WAND Electric and Gas Utilities Taxonomy which has been a part of the WAND Taxonomy Library Portal for several years.  We decided that it was time to also create an expanded independent Utility Taxonomy and then follow that with individual taxonomies for the various utility providers.  We will keep the WAND Electric and Gas Utilities Taxonomy as a legacy taxonomy.


The new WAND Electric Utilities Taxonomy provides a foundation of 698 terms and 270 synonyms and can be customized to fit the needs of any Electric Utility Company.

This taxonomy includes terms relating to Demand Side Management, Electric Associations and Organizations, Electric Utilities Standards and Guidelines, Electric Utility Infrastructure, Electric Utility Metrics, Electricity Generation, Electricity Rates, Electricity Transmission and Distribution, and Forms.
Watch for our soon-to-be released  WAND Gas Utilities Taxonomy, WAND Water Utilities Taxonomy and the WAND Wastewater Utilities Taxonomy in the suite of Utilities Taxonomies. 

As with all WAND Taxonomies, the WAND Utilities Taxonomy is available by itself or as part of the WAND Taxonomy Library Portal.
