EnerNOC Continues to Promote Open Technology Standards With Participation in
OpenADR 2.0 Profile B Interoperability Test Event
BOSTON, May 23, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- EnerNOC, Inc. (Nasdaq:ENOC), a
leading provider of energy intelligence software, today announced that it
participated in a successful OpenADR Alliance test event using the
high-performance PUSH protocol, XMPP. This test event was significant because
it demonstrated interoperability of the advanced capabilities of OpenADR 2.0
Profile B, including telemetry and XMPP, which will ultimately help demand
response penetrate further into the commercial, institutional, and industrial
building market. The event was hosted at the National Institute of Standards
and Technology (NIST) in Gaithersburg, Md.
Profile B is designed for high-end embedded devices that support a wide range
of demand response services and markets. XMPP is advantageous because of its
reliability and its ability to provide secure, low-latency bidirectional
communication, which is essential for ancillary services applications where
rapid response is required. Profile B also includes essential reporting
features for telemetry and feedback that are necessary for reliable demand
response and asset monitoring.
Several OpenADR Alliance members participated in the event, which was the
first test of XMPP interoperability between OpenADR vendors. "EnerNOC is
leading the drive toward standardization in enterprise energy management, and
we're happy to see Alliance members embrace XMPP as an appropriate open
mechanism for reliable demand response communication," said Hugh Scandrett,
Vice President of Engineering at EnerNOC. "The success of this Profile B test
supports our long-standing assertion that XMPP is an ideal transport protocol
for demand response and energy data communication, and demonstrates that
OpenADR 2.0 is addressing communication requirements that are critical for
maintaining a reliable grid."
EnerNOC has employed the XMPP protocol since 2009 when the company launched
PowerTalk, a tool that helps end users gain insight into their energy
consumption by actively monitoring signals sent by smart meters or other
intelligent devices. The tool allows smart devices to send status messages at
constant, repeated intervals.
The next interoperability test will be later this month, driving toward a goal
of making the first 2.0B certified devices available this summer.
