SunSpec IEEE 2030.5 Conformance Profiles Work Group

The SunSpec IEEE 2030.5 Conformance Profiles Work Group develops and maintains Application Profiles for different uses of the IEEE 2030.5 specification. Application Profiles are used by implementers to develop conformant interfaces for their products and services, and by the SunSpec Certification program.

    • Start pending release of IEEE 2030.5-2023 and CSIP revision

Previous Topics Covered

In 2021 and 2022, this work group focused its effort on developing profiles for the following use cases:

  • Distributed Energy Resources (DER) used in California for interconnection Rule 21 compliance to the Common Smart Inverter Profile (CSIP).
  • DER used Australia, Korea, and other countries.
  • Electric Vehicle (EV) charging, for vehicle-to-grid and EV-charging-station-to-grid applications

Meetings Time

This Work Group meets on Wednesday at 8am PT. Meeting coordinates are provided on the standing calendar invite.


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 is 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.
