The greater vision: IES Europe

It is important that these harmonization processes take place on an international level to ease implementation and facilitate the required communication of decentralised energy components as demanded by the transition of the energy system.

The Vision IES Europe is already anchored in the SET-Plan Action 4 Implementation Plan 2018, Activity A4-IA0-5 PROCESS CHAIN FOR INTEROPERABILITY OF ICT SYSTEMS. (Download here)


To further expand the IES Idea, the following points need to be addressed next:

  • Setup of a transnational organisational structure to coordinate the operative work of the IES process
  • Deployment of an annually recurring process that brings together vendors and users of ICT technologies to ensure interoperability in the energy sector
  • Start the development of first integration profiles which are relevant on an European level
  • Hosting of annual European interoperability test events “Connectathon Energy”, where vendors can test their software on interoperability and conformity with the relevant integration profiles
