Abstract

In February 2013, the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) released standard CEA-2045 which defines a modular communication interface, or port, into which communication modules of any kind can be plugged. This standard is intended for application on any appliance to enable demand response (DR), automation, and remote management. EPRI Report 3002004020 describes this new standard in detail.

EPRI’s Field Demonstration Project, which is described in EPRI Report 3002004009, is a three-year collaborative research activity designed to assess this new standard. Participating utilities are fielding various end-devices and connecting them into existing and new DR programs to evaluate the standard in terms of achieving interoperability and supporting the needs of a wide range of programs. Consensus functional requirements for end-use devices are being developed and shared with manufacturers who are producing the CEA-2045 based products for field installation and testing. Communication system providers are producing plug-in communication modules needed to connect and test.

This report provides an update on project activities through the second quarter of 2015.
