Interoperability

ESMIG’s interoperability video showcases the solutions that our members provide, and also highlights how we combine individual solutions from different vendors into one interoperable architecture for Metering and Demand Side Management.

We use existing IEC and CEN/CENELEC standards to implement the information flows between the elements of the architecture, so it is easy to replace an element with one from another vendor.

The architecture ranges from Grid Operators or Energy Service Company back office to the in-home devices at the demand side. It comprises of applications such as Data Analytics, Flexibility Management, Grid Management, Data Collection, Security, Wide Area Communication, Metering, Consumer Energy Management, and finally smart home equipment. Each year we extend the architecture to display technologies and new solutions for these applications.
