About the Interoperability Demo | Stand 1F17

What? Alignment between standards from different sources

ESMIG, the European association for the smart energy solution providers, together with some of its members (Chameleon, geo, Kamstrup, Sierra Wireless, Telit, Vodafone, Watt-IS, ZIV) and project partners (EEBUS, Energy@Home, TNO, DNV GL) is working on closing the gaps in standardisation for demand-side flexibility. We are the first to show a seamless flow of information from one system to the other  in a multi-vendor environment. We do this by integrating standards from the telecom industries (from ETSI / oneM2M) with standards from the energy utility industries (from CEN/CENELEC).

The project is authorised by the European Commission DG Communications Networks, Content & Technology

The demonstration includes two main functions:

  1. collection of meter data through different interfaces corresponding to the two types of data to be collected: data for billing and real-time data for energy management
  2. home energy management through an integrated infrastructure that can be used by multiple market parties

For whom?

  • Utilities that are implementing or will implement smart meters and demand-side flexibility programmes
  • Regulators and government representatives in charge of energy efficiency programmes
  • Manufacturers of smart meters, consumer displays, consumer energy management systems, energy management gateways, metering head-end systems, IoT platforms, smart appliances, charging stations


Why? Because interoperability is one of the main challenges of our industry

Companies have created impressive technologies for home energy management, but which are not yet connected in a way that can empower consumers and maximise savings. If products and systems can’t talk to one another, the benefits they promise cannot be realised and consumers are left confused and frustrated. Therefore, interoperability is critical to driving consumer adoption of energy management solutions going forward.

Moreover, competing standards and device compatibility issues cause a restricted access to data and functionalities. The consumer cannot see the benefits of these technologies if they don’t see the immediate impact they have on energy costs and the potential to efficiently manage energy consumption, generation and storage. This is why all the stakeholders in the smart energy ecosystem must work together to empower smart consumers for the market to flourish.

About SecureGrid | Stand 1K72

New Cyber-Security & Data Analytics Technologies for Power Substations

The SecureGrid project focuses on the security of power substations in the high and medium voltage network and their electronic equipment, Intelligent Electronic Devices (IEDs), whose electronic features and remote communication capacity through communication networks represent one of the most vulnerable points of Smart Grids.

increase (or improve) the security level of IEDs in order to guarantee greater service availability.

Differential Value:
offer an integral interoperable solution at substation level, specifying the minimum architecture requirements or possible reference architectures of IEDs by type and required security level and the necessary solution so that the system is resilient.

Position the Basque Country as a global benchmark in the field of cyber-security in Smart Grids.

Develop the necessary technology in the fields of data analytics, cyber-security and electronic systems development.

  • Classify or model the information that is exchanged at substation level (communication, storage of information, HMI access, USBs, etc.) analysing their criticality level.
  • Classify or model the security levels that an IED can reach for each of the following 5 capacities in accordance with the prevailing regulations: access control, availability, integrity, confidentiality and non-repudiation.
  • Research the data analytics techniques that enable attacks to be detected, particularly coordinated attacks.
  • Define a reference architecture that enables security at a substation to be considered globally.
  • Define and develop a centralised security management system at substations which integrates the capacities of different IEDs.
  • Research the security capacity in a set of
  • Build a test environment that enables attacks to be reproduced and data to be collected.

Preliminary Results

  • Review of the prevailing regulations and the current level of security of the IEDs: information handled, communication protocols used, threats, vulnerabilities, etc.
  • Definition of an own cyber-security model for IEDs, which associates the aspects that must be fulfilled in accordance with prevailing regulations with each requirement and security level.
  • Definition of a global reference architecture at substation level, considering protection at system and component level and in line with reference standards.
  • Design of a validation platform in which cyber-attacks can be reproduced and which enables IED conformity tests to be performed with respect to the prevailing cyber-security regulations in a safe and controlled way.
