ZigBee Alliance Smart Energy Profile Version 2.0 is approved

San Ramon, Calif., August 16, 2011 — The ZigBee Alliance announced the Smart Energy Profile version 2.0 draft 0.7 was unanimously approved in the latest Smart Energy Working Group letter ballot. This successful vote is a major milestone in the completion of the Smart Energy 2.0 standard and keeps it on schedule.

While work remains resolving comments received during the letter ballot process and from the public, the 0.7 draft is now implementable and enters a testing phase. During this phase, product developers test products designed to conform to the draft for functionality and interoperability.

This testing period not only helps product developers improve their products, but also identifies any errors and provides valuable feedback for final clarifications in the standard.

Over the next several weeks, the Working Group may conduct a series of quick recirculation ballots to approve technical changes made to integrate comments received during the letter ballot process.

Integrating comments increases the level of overall consensus on the draft standard by ensuring the needs of the broadest stakeholder community are met when the standard is completed.

Smart Energy 2.0 will provide an IP-based energy management solution capable of running on a variety of both wired and wireless communication protocols, including those supported by the HomeGrid Forum, the HomePlug Powerline Alliance, the Wi-Fi Alliance and the ZigBee Alliance.

Smart Energy 2.0 already has attracted strong support from leading smart meter manufacturers, device and appliance manufacturers, utilities, energy service providers and various government and standards organizations around the world.
