Subject: RE: [smartgrid-discuss] Draft charter for proposed OASIS EnergyInteroperation Technical Committee



I can shed some light on this.  A few months ago that was a meeting to discuss how best to move OpenADR into a formal SDO.  There were representatives at the meeting from a number of different standards organizations including representatives from IEC.  In fact there were representatives from both TC-8 and TC-57 at that meeting.  The general the consensus was that IEC was probably the best SDO to move this work into, but that the right path to do that was to first develop it in both UCAIug and OASIS and then move it into IEC.  Both UCAIug and OASIS have strong ties to IEC and everyone felt that taking this path would make things much smoother and faster.


A number of people on this mailing list were on that conference call so I’ll let them chime in on this topic.


I thought there was some mention in the charter about IEC, but perhaps nothing that reflects what I stated above. Maybe there should be.

Bill et al,


I’m puzzled by the lack of any mention of the work of the IEC on Smart Grid standards.  The mention of the CIMug sort of addresses this (IEC 61968) but the IEC seems to have a major effort to develop a number of standards that are applicable to the SmartGrid and they have significant international influence.


How does the OASIS OpenADR relate to the work of the IEC on the issue of demand-response?


My perspective is from the standpoint of a company that may be providing validation and certification tools and services for Smart Grid interoperability.  The fewer competing standards or implementations of standards the better from my point-of-view.

Subject: [smartgrid-discuss] Draft charter for proposed OASIS Energy Interoperation Technical Committee


Please find attached the draft charter for the proposed OASIS Energy Interoperation Technical Committee. I've attached a PDF, OpenDocument, and Word versions, all with line numbers for ease of discussion and review.

We invite you to comment on this list and to determine your interest in joining this work - please contact me directly if you would like to be listed as a supporter.

This proposal is being posted to smartgrid-discuss for (guess what!) discussion and review. The intent of the drafting group is to revise this draft after a comment period, and then submit the revised charter to the OASIS' Technical Committee process,.

The core work of the TC is defining XML and Web services interactions for so-called Automated Demand Response, growing out of work at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory Demand Response Research Center led by Mary Ann Piette, who is the convener of the proposed TC. This specific proposal comes from the context of many discussions in and related to the OpenADR Technical Advisory Group, GridWise Architecture Council, Grid-Interop, the NIST Smart Grid project, GridEcon (a conference in March on the economics of the Smart Grid - http://www.gridecon.com/ ) and many other places.

The LBNL OpenADR body of work is being extended through two organizations/entities being created: this proposed OASIS Technical Committee and a proposed UCAIug OpenADR Task Force. In this innovative collaboration, the UCAIug, whose members are largely utilities and their suppliers, we will focus requirements, goals, data models and comments through UCAIug, involving their membership.

If you're not familiar with OASIS Technical Committee Charters, the statement of purpose is section (1)(b), the scope is section (1)(c), and identification of similar or applicable work is section (2)(a).

As usual as charters evolve, the list of supporters is empty in this public discussion draft, and the list of deliverables and timeline is not included -- the next version will have those sections completed. Again, if you would like to join this work as a supporter and member of the technical committee, let us know.

Collaboration with other groups of stakeholders is actively being sought; please contact me for how to get involved. Other stakeholders include energy market makers, Independent System Operators (such as those in California, Texas, New England, the Midwest, etc), and policy and regulatory groups.  For more details, see the draft charter -- and step forward so we can make this interoperation effort both broad and effective.
