The Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC) has announced an expansion of its liaison with the Smart Grid Interoperability Panel (SGIP), to focus on developing technologies and testbeds that will help boost IoT adoption in the energy sector – from smart homes to utility-scale infrastructure. The move will make it easier for IIC members to participate in SGIP testbeds, and vice versa, and see the two commit to a formal review of each other’s energy ambitions.Separately, Germany utility RWE has submitted its Lemonbeat communications protocol to the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) for review, as part of its work in the Web of Things interest group. It hopes Lemonbeat will become the international standard for IoT networking, and RWE is already using it inside its SmartHome trials.
