The MESA Standards Alliance (MESA) and the SunSpec Alliance have jointly released the first open, non-proprietary energy storage system specification for public review. The draft specification, referred to as SunSpec Energy Storage Model Specification, incorporated in MESA specifications as a “MESA-Device,” was developed through a joint effort and proposes standards for how the different components of an energy storage system (power meters, power conversion systems, and batteries) communicate with one another.
