MESA Standards

MESA is currently developing two specifications: MESA-ESS and MESA-Device/SunSpec Energy Storage Model.

MESA-ESS provides a standard framework for utility-scale energy storage system (ESS) data exchanges. The draft specification addresses ESS configuration management, ESS operational states, and the applicable ESS functions from the IEEE 1815 (DNP3) profile for advanced DER functions.

MESA-Device Specifications/SunSpec Energy Storage Model addresses how energy storage components within an energy storage system communicate with each other and other operational components. MESA-Device Specifications are built on the Modbus protocol.
