As load serving entities work to integrate DER’s and the demand side into their strategies, they face two majory integration challenges: ensuring that all newly deployed hardware is compatible with DERM’s and control software communication protocols, and integrating legacy DER’s and demand side hardware into new systems and strategies.
The Babblefish is tailor-made to address these needs. Whether dealing with legacy field hardware or newly deployed systems, this simple hardware device comes equipped to translate common hardware protocols (Modbus, BACnet, [OTHERS?]) into new-age, distributed energy protocols like OpenADR (or IEE 2030.5?).
