Subject: (PR) 15-day Public Review for Energy Interoperation v1.0

The OASIS Energy Interoperation TC [1] members have produced an
updated Committee Specification Draft (CSD) and submitted this
specification for 15-day public review:

Energy Interoperation Version 1.0
Committee Specification Draft 04 / Public Review Draft 04
14 December 2011

Specification Overview:
OASIS Energy interoperation describes an information model and a
communication model to enable collaborative and transactive use of
energy, service definitions consistent with the OASIS SOA Reference
Model [SOA-RM], and XML vocabularies for the interoperable and
standard exchange of:
* Dynamic price signals
* Reliability signals
* Emergency signals
* Communication of market participation information such as bids
* Load predictability and generation information

This work facilitates enterprise interaction with energy markets, which:
* Allows effective response to emergency and reliability events
* Allows taking advantage of lower energy costs by deferring or
accelerating usage,
* Enables trading of curtailment and generation,
* Supports symmetry of interaction between providers and consumers of energy,
* Provides for aggregation of provision, curtailment, and use

The definition of a price and of reliability information depends on
the market context in which it exists. It is not in scope for this TC
to define specifications for markets or for pricing models, but the TC
has coordinated with others to ensure that commonly used market and
pricing models are supported.

While this specification uses Web Services to describe the services,
no requirement or expectation of specific messaging implementation is

TC Description:
All work of the OASIS Energy Interoperation Technical Committee (TC)
is publicly visible through the TCs home page at
http://www.oasis-open.org/committees/energyinterop, including all
correspondence and prior drafts.

The committee includes members representing Independent System
Operators and Regional Transmission Operators as well as the ISO/RTO
Council, Utilities, Lawrence Berkeley Laboratories, building
automation standards, market communication, schedule communication,
electronic commerce (B2B) and software architecture experts and more.

The work of this committee is built in part on contributions of
Requirements for Demand Response PAP09 (NAESB), OpenADR 1.0 (LBL), and
business information requirements (IRC) as well as substantial
contributions from members of the OpenADR Alliance.

The specification names three profiles, OpenADR 2.0, Price
Distribution, and Transactive Energy, which call out subsets of the
specification for particular purposes.

The committee maintains a list of work items at

Public Review Period:
The public review starts 13 January 2012 and ends 28 January 2012. The
specification was previously submitted for a 15-day public review on
17 November 2011 [2]. This 15-day review is limited in scope to
changes made from the previous review. Changes are highlighted in the
diff-marked .doc and PDF files including in the specification ZIP
