The NEMO&CODED (NEMO) project targets the development of a standard-based software infrastructure, aiming to provide the appropriate support to manage energy-related devices considering an environment where energy is generated, stored, distributed, and consumed in a rational and environmentally correct way. This paper presents and discusses the results achieved so far by the project, with special emphasis on the implementation of a web services-based wrapper to seamlessly integrate new energy sources (renewable ones) into the NEMO network. Such a wrapper relies on the adoption of two standards, namely DPWS and the IEC 61850 series. The former handles service oriented related aspects whilst the latter helps to support the interoperability of Intelligent Electronic Devices (IEDs), through the use of the Abstract Communication Service Interface (ACSI) and the Substation Configuration Language (SCL). Main problems raised and solutions found are also included in the paper as well as the future steps to be performed.
