Why New Daedalus?

Daedalus was the mythical great architect and artificer of the classical world. Today, embedded intelligence is enabling the most profound changes in the way we create and use buildings since his day.

Building Intelligence meets the Intelligent Building. The Intelligent Building negotiates with the Intelligent Grid. How will this transform how we interact with the physical world?

Embbedded commerce heats up

I want to alert my readers that there are two activities afoot right now that have the potential to affect everyone interested in GridWise, particularly those interested in the new e-commerce side of energy.

  1. NIST has begun working in earnest on the protocols of the new smart grid, in particular the B2B interactions between the grid and its end nodes. Work is split into B2G, I2G, H2G, and T&D, with electric cars placed, for now, in H2G. It is important that they are opting for business to business interactions, and not on machine to machine interactions. Services inside the building would be coordinated by the business processes of the occupants. Grid messages would go to the business agent of the occupants. Interactions, including pricing and bidding, would be between the grid agents and the building agents. This group had its second meeting today, and is requesting submission of applications (use cases but with an economics/business slant) to base the roadmap around.
  2. OASIS, the e–commerce people, have a stated intent of aligning / cross-pollinating the e-commerce and the device crowds. Clearly, in WS-* (pronounced ws-splat), we have most of what we need to put secure, scalable, abstract, verifiable, transactions around the underlying business transactions of GridWise.

Those who know me, know I am excited about this convergence, which I have been writing about, at here and at other places, for years.

If you have application cases that you would like the business of energy to support, built upon transacted open markets, let me know and I will stir them into the hopper. If you want to be kept notified, let me know that as well.
