-- Information about the Candidate Standard and the OASIS Energy Interoperation TC --

The Energy Interoperation TC works to define interactions between Smart Grids and their end nodes, including Smart Buildings, Enterprises, Industries, Homes, and Vehicles.

This Candidate OASIS Standard describes an information model and a communication model to enable collaborative and transactive use of energy for exchanging:
- Dynamic price signals
- Reliability signals
- Emergency signals
- Communication of market participation information such as bids
- Load predictability and generation information

The work facilitates enterprise interaction with energy markets, which:
- Allows effective response to emergency and reliability events
- Allows taking advantage of lower energy costs by deferring or accelerating usage
- Enables trading of curtailment and generation
- Supports symmetry of interaction between providers and consumers of energy
- Provides for aggregation of provision, curtailment, and use

The TC does not define specifications for markets or pricing models, but it has coordinated with others to ensure that commonly used market and pricing models are supported.

This specification is listed in the NIST Smart Grid Interoperability Panel (SGIP) Catalog of Standards. See

Energy Interoperation Version 1.0 Committee Specification 02 received six Statements of Use from Akuacom Inc, the OpenADR Alliance, AutoGrid Systems Inc, Universal Devices, Inc, IPKeys Technologies, LLC, and TeMix Inc [5].
