The Consortium for Smart Energy Profile 2 Interoperability (CSEP) commends industry contributors on the ratification of the Smart Energy Profile 2 (SEP 2) standard.

The ZigBee Alliance recently announced the ratification of SEP 2, a standard that enables home energy information, control and management applications, as well as utility communications to devices in the home, via wired and wireless connections using Internet Protocol. CSEP says the completion of the SEP 2 specification is an important step toward delivering the shared vision of an interoperable smart grid.

Founded by HomePlug Alliance, Wi-Fi Alliance and ZigBee Alliance, CSEP is dedicated to the interoperability of products that incorporate the newly ratified SEP 2 standard. Products that will be certified for interoperability using the recently completed SEP 2 standard include a variety of wired and wireless devices for the smart grid ecosystem, such as thermostats, appliances, electric meters, gateways, vehicles and other devices in the home.
