EnergyIoT – Open Field Message Bus Interoperability

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The Open Field Message Bus (OpenFMB) project is a SGIP Priority Action Plan (PAP) addressing multi-vendor, peer-to-peer communication in the field.  This EnergyIoT™ framework enables distributed intelligence by leveraging existing information model profiles and IoT standards.  OpenFMB is utility-led and will have a real-time interoperability demonstration of microgrid use cases in the Exhibitor Expo outside the meeting rooms on Tuesday and Wednesday.  Please be sure to visit and ask questions.  Led by Erich Gunther, these panelists are all active members of the OpenFMB project team, each with a little different role and perspective.  Join us for a colorful discussion of the history of OpenFMB, the challenges experienced over the past year, the future of OpenFMB, and some interesting perspectives on where the industry is moving with EnergyIoT.
