USNAP Overview October 26, 2011
Smart Meters Utility HAN Devices HVAC & Hot Water White Appliances Consumer Electronics/PCs Home Automation Energy Displays Pools & Spas Irrigation Etc.
Empowering the consumer: Customer installable Works everywhere Works in anything Eliminates stranded assets Enables standards development process Still viable in 30 years 3
Research Interest Open Industry Collaborative o End Device Manufacturers o Communication System Providers o Utilities 2 year activity Use-cases Requirements Specification Established Industry Organization Completed Collaborative 2.0 Specification Dec 2010 Existing Products in Market and on Retail Shelves Focus: Brand Marketing, Conformance & Specification Evolution
Philosophy: “it just works” Enables connectivity and DR for broad range of consumer products Supports minimal set of basic DR commands Enables pass-through of more sophisticated protocols – SEP 2.0, OpenADR, ClimateTalk Supports current & future standards
Forming subcommittee within CEA R7 Home Networks Committee Open committee process 6 to 12 month initiative Results in ANSI standard USNAP is recognized by NIST as an Independent Conformance & Testing Authority (ITCA) Developing compliance and certification program 9
Non-profit mutual benefit 501(c)(6) Corp 40+ Members Member dues only – no license/royalty fees Focus: Brand Awareness Marketing Conformance Product certification & branding

Research: via California Energy Commission PIER USNAP Alliance Formed CEC reference design implemented by Radio Thermostat USNAP 1.0 Spec Released USNAP 2.0 Spec Released 1 st Retail Products Available USNAP & EPRI Merge Standards Development USNAP Compliance Program
A/C or D/C type Smart Grid Device (SGD) Universal Communication Module (UCM) App layer Link layer PHY layer RS485 (Line Voltage) SPI (Low Voltage) Any Communication System ( AMI, Cellular, FM, HAN, Internet LAN, Pager, … ) Any Communication System ( AMI, Cellular, FM, HAN, Internet LAN, Pager, … ) Protocol Pass-through or Direct Control SEP OpenADR ClimateTalk … e.g. Appliance HVAC Thermostat Solar... Socket Interface
DC form factor – Small foot print – Supports wireless, battery backed devices AC form factor – Supports PLC communication modules – Keeps power supply cost in module – Enables local voltage and frequency monitoring by DR modules 15
Allows for lower layer diversity for pass-through of standard protocols: Internet Protocol Smart Energy Profile OpenADR ClimateTalk Etc.
Clarifies demarcation point of Utility Program/Consumer HAN Reduces risk of stranded assets Limits legacy constraints from proprietary technologies Maximizes architectural & business model flexibility Simplifies HAN device / network interoperability Leverages existing consumer ecosystems/channels Reduces cost of acquisition for HAN Devices/Deployments Enables customer choice, Innovation & competition “…unknown unknowns – the ones we don't know we don't know”
