Subject: 15-day Public Review for EMIX Overview Version 1.0

The OASIS Energy Market Information Exchange (EMIX) TC members [1] have produced an updated Committee Note Draft (CND) and submitted this specification for 15-day public review:

EMIX Overview Version 1.0
Committee Note Draft 02 / Public Review Draft 02
14 June 2012

Specification Overview:

EMIX is used to identify and to describe energy products that might be exchanged by independent parties in a competitive marketplace. It expresses the technical specifications and price of energy products. EMIX enables many activities, but alone is not sufficient to support energy markets. EMIX has no inherent security characteristics. It is intended for use across multiple industries, many of which have distinct security requirements. 

When providing review comments, please use the line numbers in the respective PDFs for each Note Draft. 

TC Description : 

The OASIS eMIX TC works to define standards for exchanging energy characteristics, availability, and schedules to support the free and effective exchange of information. Better communication of actionable energy prices will help enable and expand efficient markets that satisfy the growing demand for lower-carbon, lower-energy buildings, net zero-energy systems, and supply-demand integration that take advantage of dynamic pricing. Businesses, homes, electric vehicles and the power grid will benefit from automated and timely communication of energy price, characteristics, quantities, and related information. 

eMIX focuses on methods of exchanging market information consistent with the OASIS Blue approach, encompassing consistency, transparency, and security. 

The eMIX TC works closely with the OASIS Energy Interoperation TC and the OASIS WS-Calendar TC, which respectively are developing Web services-based information and communication models for exchanging dynamic pricing, reliability, and emergency signals and information on energy market participation (such as bids), load predictability, and generation, and common schedule information. 

Public Review Period:

The public review starts 22 June 2012 and ends 7 July 2012. The specification was previously submitted for public review [2]. This 15-day review is limited in scope to changes made from the previous review. Changes are highlighted in the included diff-marked PDF file.

This is an open invitation to comment. OASIS solicits feedback from potential users, developers and others, whether OASIS members or not, for the sake of improving the interoperability and quality of its technical work.

All comments submitted to OASIS are subject to the OASIS Feedback License, which ensures that the feedback you provide carries the same obligations at least as the obligations of the TC members. In connection with this public review of EMIX Overview Version 1.0, we call your attention to the OASIS IPR Policy [3] applicable especially [4] to the work of this technical committee. All members of the TC should be familiar with this document, which may create obligations regarding the disclosure and availability of a member's patent, copyright, trademark and license rights that read on an approved OASIS specification. 

OASIS invites any persons who know of any such claims to disclose these if they may be essential to the implementation of the above specification, so that notice of them may be posted to the notice page for this TC's work.
