About Open Smart Grid Protocol (OSGP) OSGP is a communication protocol used to communicate with smart meters and smart grid devices. Prior to being proposed as an International and European open standard, OSGP became a defacto open standard for the smart metering market, where it is used to communicate securely and reliably with millions of smart meters and other smart grid devices.
