An Introduction to Interoperability in the Energy Sector
Interoperability is seen by many in the energy sector as key to unlocking flexibility services. However, the word interoperability is often used narrowly to describe the compatibility between interfacing pieces of technology. Energy Systems Catapult has produced this paper that argues interoperability should be considered more broadly. Understanding its wider implications will be essential if the energy system and consumers of energy are to benefit from the potential of digitisation.
