SunSpec IEEE 2030.5 Conformance Profiles Work Group
Gordon Lum of Kitu Systems
In 2021, this work group will focus its effort on developing profiles for the following use cases:
- Update and maintain the Common Smart Inverter Profile (CSIP), a profile developed for Distributed Energy Resources (DER) and used in California for interconnection Rule 21 compliance and expand its capabilities to address non-U.S. implementation use cases
- Develop an Electric Vehicle (EV) profile that supports vehicle-to-grid and EV-charging-station-to-grid applications
- Develop a Demand Response (DR) profile that supports building-to-grid applications
You must be a Contributing Member of the SunSpec Alliance to participate in this Work Group. Members may enroll through the Member Portal under ‘work groups’.
The IEEE 2030.5 Ecosystem Steering Committee developed an “Interoperability Maturity Roadmap” for IEEE 2030.5-2018 standard. This roadmap calls for the development of application profiles that are the focus of this work group. Profiles define a limited set of the features defined in the protocol specification that are needed to fulfill a given use case. The result of the effort will be a series of open SunSpec documents that can be used on a royalty-free basis. To be an effective contributor to this effort, participants should be experts in the identified use cases.
