IDSA Position paper: Interoperability Framework in Energy Data Spaces (10/2023)

This position paper, by the Energy Interoperability Task Force which IDSA is leading, has the purpose to define a framework for achieving technical and semantic interoperability between data spaces in the energy domain. To accomplish this, it takes the work of the HORIZON-CL5-2021-D3-01 projects as its foundation, and describes the state of the art, and the challenges specific to this context.

BRIDGE Reference framework (06/2023)

This report presents an update of the Reference Framework, now describing 7 Generic Business Processes and also detailing the Settlement subprocess. It also highlights 3 main findings and recommendations (see §4.1): Consistency with existing standards and on-going initiatives: activities similar to the Reference Framework are performed in parallel to BRIDGE activities, in particular in IEC with 62913 series and in SGTF EG1 with a set of Implementing Acts for the Electricity Directive Article 24. Cooperation with these initiatives should be established to ensure consistency. Expectations and benefits from the Generic Business Processes: seven GBPs are now defined, covering flexiblity, energy monitoring and P2P trading.

BRIDGE Interoperability of home appliances (05/2023)

This initial BRIDGE Report on interoperability of home appliances aims at providing a common view on the issue as well as at showing the first results from investigating the current state of affairs on this aspect within the BRIDGE projects. In the area of energy flexibility in residential buildings the home appliances constitute to the lowest, but probably one of the most important layers of the system. These appliances are indeed providing the flexibility. The success of the energy management solutions, like algorithms or systems, is highly related to the capabilities of the home appliances, as well as the ability to approach and exploit these capabilities. In that respect, a broader range of appliances providing flexibility and a common way to control these, allows wider deployment of energy management systems and increases the available flexibility of the energy systems.
