SAN DIEGO, CA and TAIPEI, TAIWAN -- (Marketwired) -- 01/27/14 -- Grid2Home, developer of Smart Energy Profile 2 (SEP2), now published as IEEE2030.5, today announced that they are demonstrating SEP2 on the Tatung Gateway One, based upon STMicroelectronics STreamPlug at Booth 3817 at Distributech during January 28-30, 2014. Grid2Home will demonstrate Smart Energy control securely from a remote cloud-based server to a Home Gateway, several Smart Grid-enabled devices including an electric-vehicle charging station, electric-vehicle emulator, sub-meter, gas meter, thermostat and a customer in-home display.
"We are very excited to be working with Tatung and their Gateway One product," stated Mike Bourton, VP of Business Development of Grid2Home, "demonstrating that SEP2 is ready for full deployment."
The G2H-SE2 software, which supports multiple applications, including electric vehicles, appliances, thermostats and load and energy sources, is interoperable across a wide range of devices, and has been ported to multiple hardware platforms and physical layers including Wi-Fi, ZigBee, Bluetooth and PLC and HomePlug AV/GP.
"Tatung has long envisioned an open service platform as key to releasing the full potential of smart energy. Gateway One is a significant milestone working towards this vision, and is just one of the fruits of our partnership with ST," said W. K. Lin, president of Tatung Co. "We will have available a complete range of Tatung Smart Energy enabled products and modules shortly with Grid2Home SEP2, including a Meter Collar that converts SEP1.x to SEP2 and can extend the range for multi-dwelling units with PLC."
The Tatung Gateway One enables users to setup multi-bearer home networks combining Ethernet, WLAN, HomePlug AV/GP and multimedia devices, greatly enhancing opportunities to improve energy efficiency, security, comfort and convenience throughout the home. Tatung's Meter Bridge and Home-Area Network (HAN) Bridge enable multi-occupancy dwellings to benefit from smart-energy applications, while solving consumption and billing challenges. The M1i and M3 are intelligent devices that provide energy management as well as network connectivity for devices plugged into the AC line. The M1i is optimized for industrial applications, while the M3 is featured for domestic use including charging plug-in electric vehicles. In an earlier announcement, Tatung has partnered with Arkados and enabled the software environments that include the LinuUSP for Gateway One and the modules. Adding G2H-SE2 software opens up a wide array of smart energy applications.
"At ST, we are helping our customers to get more from technology so that everyone can get more from life. We design, manufacture, and deliver solutions which enable our customers to bring a rich and immersive experience to the consumer," said Oleg Loginov, Director, Special Assignments, Industrial and Power Conversion Division, STMicroelectronics. "We have had a great collaboration with Tatung and Grid2Home and believe the companies can be a major catalyst in unlocking the true potential of the Smart Grid."
