The Continental Automated Buildings Association (CABA) and ClimateTalk Alliance have signed an agreement to collaborate on intelligent home and intelligent building issues.

Under the terms of the agreement, CABA and ClimateTalk will establish forums for a timely and open exchange of information and establish vehicles for engaging an array of stakeholders including the utility industry, regulatory organizations, energy service providers, building automation vendors, telecom firms, information technology vendors, consumer groups and government organizations.

The first project that both organizations will be cooperating on is CABA’s “Impact of Smart Grid on Connected Homes” research initiative.

According to CABA, the research study is designed to improve the understanding of residential smart grid development and deployment in terms of identifying market demand and growth areas for new products.

Ronald Zimmer, CABA president and CEO said the agreement will “accelerate the application of intelligent technologies in homes and buildings to aid in the deployment of the smart grid.”

ClimateTalk is a non-profit organization made up of companies that are developing a universal language that enables communication among energy-hungry equipment, while at the same time optimizing performance, efficiency and home comfort.
