ESNA: making standards available to grow the ecosystem.Energy Services Network Association (ESNA) is an independent global, not-for-profit association under Dutch law. Members are utilities, software, hardware and service providers, and solution integrators sharing a common goal and vision for promoting open standards for energy demand side management, smart grid and smart metering systems.
In 2010, ESNA members announced their intent to publish the Open Smart Grid Protocol (OSGP) as an open standard, enabling independent implementation of interoperable meters and other smart grid devices from multiple vendors on the same network. Built on open ISO/IEC and IEEE standards, OSGP adds additional security and reliability services necessary to properly network and manage devices in the smart grid. The OSGP standard will ensure reliability, robustness, and efficiency of the smart grid, and as applications are deployed such as point-of-use monitoring and control of power usage, it will enable utilities to reduce peak loads and pass on energy cost savings to consumers. In addition to building OSGP-compliant solutions, utilities can better avoid vendor lock-in and purchase best-in-class products to achieve better ROI.For more information, please contact: Harry Crijns
