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

Well, I'm not a member, but for someone who's well immersed in my own organization's Smart Grid initiative, I would say that one critical component missing in this draft proposal is a discussion around cyber security.

There are a number of interrelated factors that need to be considered relative to cyber security and the Smart Grid, including the basic attributes (primary security services) of Confidentiality, Integrity, Availability, Accounting/Auditing, Identification, Authentication, Authorization and Non-repudiation.  Privacy is another attribute, but it relies upon the others and is mainly a consideration of laws and regulations and how it relates to the individual.  

There are a lot of factors involved with the implementation of the Smart Grid and it relies heavily on cyber security.

Best regards,

Neil Greenfield

[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.
