Data delivery in the power grid today is, for the most part, hard-coded, tedious to implement and change, and does not provide any real end-to-end guarantees. Applications have started to emerge that require real-time data delivery in order to provide a wide-area assessment of the health of the power grid. This paper presents two novel communication infrastructures that facilitate the delivery of power data to intended recipients, each based on a different communication paradigm. The necessity of forming and managing trusted partnerships in either framework is further discussed.
