  • ConnectivityWeek 2009: Extraordinary | OASIS Staff Blogs
    room for a meaningful discussion on generational responsibility We are however at a stage of our technical development that threatens to annihilate us and this is forcing ethical and political change at an unprecedented pace Despite the diversity of interests in our own nation and despite the mosaic of regimes and views worldwide global warming increasing pollution and demographic growth are making us all into one people and one planet This is the thesis underlying Jared Diamond s Collapse Perhaps that s too global of a perspective for ConnectivityWeek but Anto himself was asking the responsibility question on stage His young respondent answered with a cheerful let s look at this as a challenge and I find myself concurring nobody can tell us how to build the Smart Grid or make the planet a better place or make our growth sustainable because it s never been done before And if it has they re not lending us a helping hand apparently To zoom back in from the stratosphere into the various tracks at the conference I was generally impressed with the quality of the speakers and the content Our own track OASIS BlueConnect was the first of its kind It was probably not as well attended as some with an average of twenty five participants per session but the brainpower was phenomenal from Kimon Unoma demonstrating BIM Storm to Toby Nixon speaking about WS Device Discovery and a host of other speakers making the case for Open Standards Paul De Martini at SoCal Edison George Arnold and Dave Holmberg at NIST Jim Butler at Cimetrics Bill Cox Toby Considine and Rex Brooks on behalf of OASIS Mary Ann Piette at Lawrence Berkeley Francis Rabuck at Bentley Systems Guy Miasnik CEO of AtHoc and too many more to mention here Here are some of the things we learned SmartGrid will require the following ingredients not a comprehensive list venture capital policy such as the strategic standards roadmap regulation hundreds of standards a better focus on security and privacy better modeling and visualization tools especially in the construction sector a better handle on patents What can we do about it at OASIS We already have an Energy Interoperability TC which is about to meet for the first time We are about to launch our OASIS Blue Member Section which will revolve around energy and sustainability work Logically we will leverage the huge suite of security eCommerce eBusiness and SOA standards that have been created in OASIS to allow devices on the network to communicate bidirectionally with the Grid I was asked at the conference what I meant when I used the word bidirectional and this is where we get into the energy industry s legitimate concerns about where Smart Grid is going This is what I mean if devices homes buildings and factories all becomes smarter about their energy information I would expect them to exchange this data and send it to the Grid I would also expect the Grid to be

  • Smart Grid May Change The World Once Again ... But Not As We Might Think | OASIS Staff Blogs
    shortsightedness that comes with living in the present And so I will make my own doomed prediction based on a true premise the Smart Grid is like the Internet because the potential of its economic engine is equally staggering Well I suppose that s a bit of a prediction right there And now for the prophecy the Smart Grid will happen quickly because without it we will fail as a civilization and we run the very real risk of devolving This has to do with the phenomenon of Peak Oil the idea that we have discovered more usable fossil fuels fields than there are still to be found In all fairness I should mention that dozens of sites purport to debunk geologist M King Hubbert s Peak Oil theory such as this one Corollary the writing is on the wall for us as a species if we do not solve the energy conundrum There is a common concept in science fiction that describes species so old and mature that they end up subliming vanishing into an incomprehensible nirvana of their own making This posits that cultural and biological evolution become one I believe we are witnessing this on a planetary scale the challenges that face us are not about nations they are about humankind as a whole We all feel this but we do not know it in our minds we are still attached to our flags our heritage our neck of the woods And yet the knowledge is here for all to acquire global warming global water shortages global terrorism globalization notice the repetition If we cannot successfully navigate these challenges we will inevitably fail as a global culture We may even peter out as an evolutionary branch leaving the playing field to the raccoons the coyotes and the social insects Smart Grid will help us meet the challenges It is a surefire way of drastically reducing our consumption of energy of making the energy markets drastically more efficient of putting the responsibility for energy usage squarely in the hands of those it affects the most you and I And this is where recent history offers us insights and where the analogy between the Internet and Smart Grid revolutions finds another parallel when the telephone companies were deregulated at first there was tohu and bohu and lo and behold from this chaos emerged reconstructed telephone empires The true deregulation occurred only when digital and cellular changed the game the Internet brought us and continues us to bring us real choice In the same way the utility deregulation first brought us chaos blackouts governor recalls and insane prices The true deregulation will happen when the Smart Grid brings new energy producers on the scene Anyone with solar panels on their roof is a producer Of course today s utilities will be players but not the only players And should they unwisely choose not to embrace the smarter grid their survival will be in question The title of this post was

  • "Blue" is the new "green" - Part 2 | OASIS Staff Blogs
    Why buildings are one key to the puzzle In the United States heating ventilation and air conditioning HVAC systems account for 30 4 65 EJ of the energy used in commercial buildings and nearly 50 10 1 EJ of the energy used in residential buildings Wikipedia Even if the numbers are not entirely accurate they point to an obvious issue if we are to address the impending energy shortage we need to make our buildings whether commercial or residential much more efficient Standards can contribute to the process in OASIS we have the oBIX Technical Committee which enables mechanical and electrical control systems in buildings to communicate with enterprise applications Another intriguing extension of this interfacing between buildings and the power grid is the Common Alerting Protocol which may one day allow buildings to give out layout security and emergency information to first responders SmartGrid is another key The power grid is about to undergo a major facelift with the advent of Automated Demand Response ADR which would allow for the optimization of load and pricing at the station level and possibly on the consumer side with smart metering We believe devices in the home and the building TVs refrigerators HVAC etc can communicate their specs and power requirements to building software agents One OASIS TC Web Services Devices Discovery WS DD is working on secure Web service messaging discovery description and eventing on resource constrained endpoints which essentially allows devices to declare themselves and be coordinated on a network If they possessed device information software agents might be able to communicate with the power grid schedule load for instance This becomes even more interesting if the house or building produces power from solar panels or a fuel cell and wishes to negotiate prices on a dynamic basis This in
