Smart Energy Market Challenges
The Smart Energy industry has made an impressive start, with standards that promote product interoperability. But deciding on technology standards is only the beginning. You’ll face some daunting challenges:
- Understanding how to benefit from a standard and ensuring it improves your value-add
- Training your team to develop, specify and/or acquire products based on specific standards
- Assessing the maturity of various standards so you can avoid orphaned or obsolete implementations as standards evolve
- Designing implementation processes to ensure interoperability of products from multiple vendors
- Accelerating development and deployment of products while ensuring interoperability
Get your team up to speed on emerging smart grid standards like OpenADR 2, IEEE 2030.5, IEC 61850, SunSpec, OCPP, IEC 15118, Green Button, MultiSpeak and more.
The QualityLogic team can help you assess the maturity of smart grid standards you are considering. This ensures informed decisions about specifications, development and implementation plans.
Get the state-of-the-art test tools to simulate environments to test interoperability of smart grid products. Test an implementation against a “correct” implementation and debug interoperability issues.
Added Confidence For Your Buyers
QualityLogic works with industry alliances and consortiums to design, develop and support test tools for certification programs for smart grid standards.
Proud to serve these Smart Energy clients:
“Our customers asked us to demonstrate the use of open standards with independent validation. IEEE 2030.5 was the logical communications standard to implement because of its capabilities for the application, the availability of approved certification tests, and TTA’s conformance testing using the test tools from QualityLogic.”Jae-Jo Lee, Team Leader, Power Telecommunication Research Center
