30-day Public Review for Transport Protocol Bindings for OASIS Energy Interoperation V1.0

The OASIS Energy Interoperation TC [1] members have recently approved a Committee Specification Draft (CSD) and submitted this specification for 30-day public review:

Transport Protocol Bindings for OASIS Energy Interoperation 1.0 Version 1.0
Committee Specification Draft 01 / Public Review Draft 01
16 May 2012

Specification Overview:

The OASIS Energy Interoperation (EI) Version 1.0 technical specification defines EI services and operations, XML, service and operation payloads and service operation interaction patterns. EI payloads can be exchanged using WSDL-based SOAP messages or using other transport protocols. For interoperability, any use of other networking technologies should be profiled and standardized.

This version of this specification specifies standardized exchange of EI messages using the AS4 profile of the OASIS ebMS 3.0 OASIS Standard.

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, tilities,
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.

Energy Interoperation 1.0, completed in early 2012, provides a definition for SOAP-based web services; the specification under review is the first of
several anticipated alternate tranport bindings.

The committee maintains a list of work items at http://tools.oasis-open.org/issues/browse/ENERGYINTEROP.

Public Review Period:

The public review starts 14 June 2012 and ends 14 July 2012.

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.
