The Department of Energy is trying to spur smart building interoperability with its Buildings-to-Grid Program.

“Interoperability is the ability to exchange actionable information between two or more systems within a home or building, or across multiple buildings and the grid,” DOE says. “If implemented on a national scale, its benefits could be enormous.”

The Buildings-to-Grid program is coordinating strategies and activities with stakeholders to integrate and optimize homes and commercial buildings with the nation's energy grid.
