Efficient energy storage in distributed energy systems depends on the operation of a set of coordinated devices spread around the power system. These include not only storage devices, but also production and consump- tion devices. Usually these devices encompass some communication skills and are able to be operated by energy management systems, regarding the status of the power system. However, despite this interaction readiness, most of these devices rely on non-standard communication protocols and some interoperability issues still remain. This paper presents an innovative plug & play approach for the integration of energy stor- age devices, supported by a standard-based and service-oriented software infrastructure entitled NEtworked MOnitoring & COntrol, Diagnostic for Electrical Distribution (NEMO). This approach adopts the Interna- tional Electrotechnical Commission’s 61850 (IEC 61850) semantic information model and the Devices Profile for Web Services (DPWS) specific communication service mapping, to perform a seamless device integration and communication of energy storage devices.
