The goal of this activity is to effectively advance the ease of integration (the process to achieve interoperability) of distributed energy resources (DER, including responsive generation, storage, and load) into the electric system. An ecosystem of organizations needs to be aligned not only on technical standards, but the profile of standards choices that are tested and certified to make this integration occur simply and reliably. In addition, the encouragement of a business and economic regulatory policy environment that aligns technology solutions with realizable business value propositions is important for driving the need to simplify integration and advance future work on standardization and testing. This effort intends to engage the ecosystem of organizations interested in promoting IEEE Std 2030.5™ and the related areas that will provide visibility and advance interoperability for DER integration.
The activity of this group will focus on the development of a roadmap that outlines activities to advance the interoperability dimensions related to DER integration starting with the present state of IEEE Std 2030.5, supporting material, and related efforts.
We welcome new participants from large and small corporations, academia, industry, and government agencies that are interested in the Ecosystem Steering Committee. Members will include but are not limited to:
- DER owners and users
- DER equipment suppliers
- DER energy-management system suppliers
- Regulators and government agencies
- Trade associations and industry consortia
- Testing and certification organizations
Possible Industry Outcomes
Proposed deliverables and outcomes from this Industry Connections activity may include documents (e.g., white papers, reports), proposals for standards, conferences and workshops, databases, computer code, etc. The deliverables of this activity will be:
- Implementation of many of the activities that were spelled out in the interoperability roadmap for the IEEE Std 2030.5 ecosystem that was developed earlier
update of the roadmap document (which outlines activities and priorities for
members of the ecosystem to address)
