Chair of OASIS Blue Steering Committee

April 2010
Congratulations to EED's Dave Chassin, who is chairing the steering committee of the newly formed OASIS Blue, a member section within OASIS, or Organization for the Advancement of Structured Information Standards. OASIS Blue brings together a variety of open standards projects related to energy, intelligent buildings, and natural resources, and will leverage the innovation of existing electronic commerce standards and the power of the Internet to achieve meaningful sustainability. An international effort, OASIS Blue incorporates work that has been identified as a central deliverable for the U.S. government's strategic Smart Grid initiative. According to Dave, "OASIS Blue provides a safe, neutral environment where stakeholders can cooperate to define clear taxonomies and information-sharing protocols that will be recognized by the international standards community."
