This paper presents the results of an assessment of a wide range of standards in the smart grid and telecommunications domains that may be jointly used to implement three use cases focusing on the use of the multi-agent systems paradigm in enhancing the smart grid particularly in the area of flexibility management. In addition to supporting a decentralised grid, multi-agent systems can improve other aspects such as reliability, performance and security. The paper identifies relevant standards based on a set of key smart grid use cases from the EU Mas2tering project. The evaluation aims to provide recommendations on combining those standards. This will enable new collaboration opportunities between grid operators, telecom and energy companies, both from technology and business perspectives. The set of telecommunication and energy standards is identified based on existing EU smart grid implementations, models (such as the Smart Grid Architecture Model) and reports published by the European and International standardisation bodies and coordination groups.
