Title: OASIS Collaborative Energy Standards, Facilities, and ZigBee Smart Energy
Published: February 01, 2012
Abstract: The enterprise integration-style interfaces and information models in the Organization for the Advancement of Structured Information Systems (OASIS) collaborative energy standards are designed to address information exchange across the smart grid. This paper examines two key types of information exchange to demonstrate the ability of these standards to express this information: block and tier tariff information, and demand response event information. Our approach analyzes the information that must be communicated at the facility interface to meet the needs of ZigBee Smart Energy Profile 2.0 (SEP2) , and demonstrates that this information is represented in a way that can in turn be consumed. We show that the OASIS Energy Market Information Exchange (EMIX) information model can express specific tariffs usable to environments such as SEP2, and also describe the information model for demand response events within OASIS Energy Interoperation. This approach of examining information models can be used to show bidirectional mappings between SEP2 and EMIX/Energy Interoperation environments in other contexts as well.
