OASIS forms group to adapt existing calendaring specifications for Smart Grid

The OASIS Blue Member Section operated from Oct 2009 until Sept 2012. OASIS Technical Committees affiliated with the Blue Member Section remain active and the archives of this work are publicly accessible. Information on this web site is preserved for legacy purposes only.

The OASIS Web Services Calendar (WS-Calendar) Technical Committee works to adapt existing calendaring specifications for Web services, with a focus on Smart Grid prices and schedules.

WS-Calendar will be developed for use inside other specifications and standards, bringing a common scheduling function to diverse interactions in different domains. The TC will base its initial work on the XML serialization of iCalendar (IETF RFC 5545) developed by CalConnect.org.

Use cases and requirements on Demand Response (DR) and Distributed Energy Resources (DER) will be contributed to the WS-Calendar project by the North American Energy Standards Board (NAESB). Work done within the OASIS oBIX TC on scheduling for building systems will also be included.

All are welcome to participate in the WS-Calendar Technical Committee. Contact OASIS Member Services for details on how to get involved.
