Researches on interoperability are carried out in order to optimize a smart and efficient management of the electric grid, and to permit a technology advance in the distributed generation and in the demand management.

The Instituto Tecnológico de la Energía, ITE, boast an Interoperability Laboratory that allows the configuration of automatic, repeatable and controlled stable scenes in order to reproduce a part of the low voltage distribution electrical grid, and to verify the interoperability between the devices of different manufacturers. Thanks to the laboratory it is possible to analyze the availability of communication nodes and their performance on different scenes, so as to prevent future problems during the massive deployment of Smart devices.
