SunSpec Ecosystem Newsletter October 2021

At the core of the SunSpec Alliance ecosystem is a steady momentum of progress driven by the dedicated efforts of our seven primary Work Groups. Consisting of representatives from SunSpec member companies, a designated Work Group leader, and a SunSpec employee, these groups meet weekly or bi-weekly to engage in the active process of standards making. As the year barrels towards a close, we’d like to acknowledge some of the major achievements of these groups and their impacts on the SunSpec ecosystem as a whole.

SunSpec Alliance is the information standards and certification organization for the Distributed Energy Resource (DER) industry. SunSpec communication standards address operational requirements of solar and energy storage on the smart grid.
