The ClimateTalk Alliance announced its launch with current industry-leading members including Consert Inc., Embedded Electronic Design Solutions (EDC), Emerson Climate Technologies, E-Senza, EWC Controls Inc, Microchip Technology Inc., Rheem Manufacturing Company, and Watsco, Inc. The ClimateTalk Alliance will drive the future of ClimateTalk, an open standards communication framework that enables simple connectivity among diverse HVAC and Smart Energy devices, leveraging existing industry standards for seamless information integration.

The ClimateTalk framework allows various components, including increasingly important smart energy devices, to send messages in the same language, no matter what brand of equipment is being used. It offers a solution for the homeowner as well as installation and diagnostic simplicity for contractors, which is of growing importance as the number of certified technicians for advanced systems continues to decrease. It can also expand message sets and applications, allowing for the addition of new components without upgrading the user interface, which offers ease of integration and flexibility for the OEM and allows for OEM customization and differentiation within a common framework.

The ClimateTalk Alliance is open to companies committed to providing long term interoperability of communicating devices that provide reduction in energy consumption while improving comfort and end user experience. For more information, please visit www.ClimateTalk.org
