Subcommittees & Working Groups

Architecture Subcommittee 

  • Scope: The Architecture Subcommittee of the Smart Buildings, Loads, and Consumer Systems Committee is responsible for developing and maintaining plans, concepts, and structural views related to architectural issues associated with the integration and coordinated operation of distributed energy resources (DER – responsive distributed generation, storage, and loads) related to consumer energy services. This includes the following:
    • Plans for conceptual structures and organizational principles for integrating DER with the electric power system
    • Concepts and structures that provide insight into coordination frameworks between transmission, mid-voltage, distribution, and DER facility systems
    • Conceptual models for discussion points of interconnection and information technology interactions.
    • Interoperability principles and tools to measure the maturity of standards, guides, and conventions for the purpose if integrating DER with the electric power system, identify gaps, and helping to prioritize steps to advance interoperability.

Customer Systems & Smart Buildings Subcommittee

  • Scope: The Customer Systems & Smart Buildings Subcommittee focuses on the process of design, operation and integration of smart buildings and other customer systems with up- and down-stream energy processes and applications such as building energy management; energy facilities management; fire, safety and security systems in regards to energy systems; microgrids and smart grid. Standards based interoperability between products and processes is at the centre of all activities and is explored as the key enabler linking data with systems capabilities behind the meter.

Loads Subcommittee

  • Scope: The Loads Subcommittee explores the treatment of all matters in which the dominant factors are the application, design, deployment and operation of customer loads, and the technology and standards to support the functions of these consumer interests, including processes and models that may expand and clarify the relationship between the grid and load related energy resources and services behind the meter.
