ETSI M2M community and DG Connect will organize a workshop on 14 October 2014 at the ETSI Headquarters in Sophia Antipolis.

In the future, domestic or industrial energy using and producing products, also called appliances, will not be stand-alone systems anymore. They will be highly intelligent, networked and smart devices, which form complete energy consuming, producing, and managing systems. One of the requirements for making such systems commercially successful and widely adopted, is that they can be extended over time according to the needs and budget of the user. Such systems will therefore consist of devices from different vendors added at different points in time, with open interfaces enabling further extension. These systems will also need to be able to communicate with service platforms from different energy service providers. ETSI's proposed standard will take account of these requirements and will ensure interoperability through the integration with ETSI's M2M architecture.

In coordination with this initiative, the European Commission has launched a "Study on the available semantics assets for the interoperability of Smart Appliances; Mapping into a common ontology as a M2M application layer semantics" (SMART 2013/0077), which will provide input to the ETSI work.

ETSI M2M community and DG Connect organized a first workshop on Smart M2M Appliances on 27-28 May 2014 in Brussels, to deal with a new generation of smart appliances, with active behavior at energy efficiency management, conformant to a "plug and play" interoperability capacity, and a clear mandate to start with a high-level (semantic) modelling of information to be exchanged. The event brought together stakeholders and experts from various environments who discussed Smart Cities and sustainability, Energy Efficient buildings, BIM (Building Information Modelling) and BEMS (Building Energy Management Systems) interoperability with appliances, Internet of Things or smart grids.

Scope

This is a follow up workshop, planned for 14 October 2014 and hosted by ETSI in Sophia Antipolis.

This workshop aims at:

  • Presenting the SMART 2013/007 Second Interim Report: the translation exercise of each ontology model (or use case) currently available for Smart Appliances, and selected at the first round as short listed, to a common ontology language and a mapping or matching exercise between all the models.
  • An opening of the discussion about Certification processes and approaches that could be used to certify the conformance of future Smart M2M Appliances against the Technical Test-Specification by ETSI.

Target audience

The event will bring together stakeholders and experts from various environments who discussed Smart Cities and sustainability, Energy Efficient buildings, BIM (Building Information Modelling) and BEMS (Building Energy Management Systems) interoperability with appliances, Internet of Things or smart grids.

Agenda

The event programme is now available. 

It will be split around two majors sessions: one on interoperability, common ontology and communication framework and a second one on certification process.
