MESA Use Cases:

Examples of Using MESA-DER

MESA Use Cases provide examples of how best to use the MESA-DER Specification for achieving your goals. Do you want Energy Arbitrage? How can Schedules  be used? What about meeting the IEEE 1547-2018 requirements?


Grid-connected DER and energy storage systems benefit the electric power industry and all electric users, from the smallest residential customers to the largest industrial plants.

Communications are critical for managing grid-connected DER, and standardized communication specifications are therefore key to the deployment of large numbers of DER and ESS across all grids worldwide.

MESA standardized communication specifications clear barriers to this critical need for interoperability.

Through standardization of communication specifications, MESA accelerates interoperability, scalability, safety, quality, availability, and affordability in distributed energy resources (DER), in particular energy storage systems (ESS) and their components.
