Our Energy Flexibility Interface (EFI) is a communications protocol to control multiple smart appliances (dish washers, heating, airco, solar panels, car charging). All in order to signal the smart grid its energy flexibility. Because EFI is not interfering the control of the device itself, nor how the Smart Grid Technology works, it has the potential to become an universal language for all Smart Grid Services dealing with Energy flexibility.
If a manufacturer fabricates a product that support EFI, their product is able to communicate with all Smart Grid technologies (Powermatcher, OpenADR, Triana). The other way around….by supporting EFI, developers of new Smart Grid technologies are sure that their solution can communicate with all smart devices that support EFI.
