Announcement

The ECHONET Lite Specification will be recommended as an open standard interface.
On November 7 this year, the Japan Smart Community Alliance (JSCA), which consists of the METI and private manufacturers, has set up a study group for smart house standardization in the Energy Management Sub-Working Group (EMS-SWG) under the International Standardization WG. The HEMS task force of the study group has been deliberating on standard protocols that will play a central role in smart houses. Consequently, it determined to recommend the ECHONET Lite Specification as an open standard interface. It was proposed and approved at the smart house standardization meeting on December 16.
On the same day, the METI made a press announcement on this, which was reported in multiple newspapers. In the future, the Smart Metering Task Force of the study group will discuss the use of ECHONET Lite for interoperation between smart meters and HEMS systems.
