Member, ESNA

ESNA, The Energy Service Network Association, is an association of companies to promote the application of advanced energy management systems, including AMR/AMM, based on the Networked Energy Services (NES) smart grid infrastructure platform and to expand the interoperability standard for utility networks NTA 8150. ESNA is comprised of utilities, application designers, IT companies, hardware manufacturers and consultants.


Michael AndersonSVP, NES Sales and Market DevelopmentEchelon Corporation

Echelon Corporation (NASDAQ: ELON) is leading the worldwide transformation of the electricity grid into a smart, communicating energy network, connecting utilities to their customers, enabling networking of everyday devices, and providing customers with energy aware homes and businesses that react to conditions on the grid.


Claude Godin

President, Energy ICT

Founded in 1991 and recently acquired by Elster, Energy ICT provides advanced energy monitoring and control systems to utilities and their customers with over 400 systems installed:

  • Largest AMI- US = DTE (2.8 million hourly electric , 1.2 million daily gas, 20 K C&I)
  • Largest AMI – Europe = EDF( 35 million 2-channel, ½ hour electric)
  • Largest MDMA = IMServ (+100,000 meters/150,000 channels read daily)
  • Largest EMS = Wal-Mart (3,500 stores - 21,000 meters)

there is an unmet market need
There Is An Unmet Market Need
  • Today’s AMI systems are closed
  • AMI systems are meter-centric, not smart-grid-centric
esna is filling this market need
ESNA is Filling This Market Need
  • Making available a field-proven Open Smart Grid Protocol (OSGP)
    • Proven scalability and reliability in over 2 million smart grid devices worldwide (meters and more)
  • Promoting adoption of smart grid systems and standards built on the OSGP standard
  • Providing a certification process to assure products comply with OSGP specifications
the crisis at the edge of the grid
The crisis at the edge of the grid

U.S. utilities experience peak demand just 2% of the year…but incur 15% of their annual costs on these days

Outages have increased by 124% in the U.S. over the past two decades

Developing countries' share of global electricity demand is projected to jump from 27% in 2000 to 43% in 2030

There will be 1 million EV chargers in the US by 2015

the power of open control at the edge of the grid
