MultiSpeak is a specification / standard that defines standardized interfaces among software applications used by electric utilities. It defines details of data that need to be exchanged between software applications in order to support different processes applied at utilities; the MultiSpeak effort is funded by the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association. The National Institute of Standards and Technology has developed a Smart Grid Conceptual Reference Model as part of its Smart Grid Standards Framework and Roadmap. NIST has identified 42 standards to support this vision. MultiSpeak was chosen by NIST as a key standard in the Operations area of the NIST Conceptual Model; the MultiSpeak Specification is the most applied de facto integration standard in North America pertaining to distribution utilities. It is in use in daily operations of more than 600 electric cooperatives, investor-owned utilities and public power districts in at least 15 different countries. Over 80 software vendors active in the utility industry have joined the MultiSpeak initiative and contribute their experience to refining the standard.

The MultiSpeak standard makes use of three components: Definitions of common data semantics: It contains the details of data that need to be exchanged. Data semantics are documented in the form of an extensible markup language schema. Definitions of message structure: It defines message structures to support the required data interchanges. Web services calls. Definition of messages required to support specific business process steps: This details the business process steps to accomplish the data. CIM covers transmission and distribution whereas MultiSpeak is distribution focused. MultiSpeak is focused to meet the needs of electric cooperatives in the US, while IEC 61968 / CIM is focused towards all utilities in the international marketplace. IEC 61968 is transport independent. SOAP messages using HTTP, TCP/IP sockets connections directly between applications, file-based transfers are used for transferring data in MultiSpeak. Both standards use XML Schema for definition of messages and focus on interfaces between applications, as opposed to data structures internal to applications.

Message headers can be mapped between MultiSpeak and IEC 61968 but mapping of message content between the two is more complex. In June 2008 MultiSpeak and WG14 announced an initiative to establish two sets of standards that will lead towards harmonization of their respective specifications. After completion of the same, this will provide a mapping between MultiSpeak Version 4.0, IEC 61970 Version 13, IEC 61968 Version 10. Two sets of standard work planned for the same are listed below: IEC 61968-14-1-3 to 14-1-10 — Proposed IEC Standards to Map IEC61968 and MultiSpeak Standards. IEC 61968-14-2-3 to 14-2-10 — Proposed IEC Standards to Create a CIM Profile to Implement MultiSpeak Functionality. MultiSpeak version 5.0 was first released 2/18/2015. MultiSpeak version 4.1 was first released 6/30/2010. MultiSpeak version 3.0 was first released 10/20/2005. IEC 61968 IEC 61970 CIM

The Brunts Academy

The Brunts Academy, a large secondary school in Mansfield, England, is a member of the Evolve Trust. The school specialises in the performing arts, it has been a grammar school and a secondary technical school and traces its foundation to a bequest by Samuel Brunt in 1709. The Brunts School became The Brunts Academy with effect from 1 January 2012; the Brunts Academy can trace its history back to an elementary school, founded in 1687 and had endowments equal to £100 per year. In 1709, Samuel Brunt left a bequest in order; the bequest and the school resulted in 40 boys and girls learning reading and arithmetic by 1831 with the girls studying needlework. It was not until 60 years that the school and the bequest were combined. In 1830 Brunts Charity owned buildings and land in East Bridgford, Nottingham's marketplace and at Claypool in Lincolnshire, it was the richest of all the charitable foundations in Mansfield in 1832 when it was paying out £4 a year to 220 different claimants. By 1891, Samuel Brunt's bequest was worth £3,800 so the new school was named Brunts Technical School.

A new building was established at Woodhouse Road, Mansfield with the new Brunts Technical School opened 29 September 1894. In 1976 Brunts Grammar School became a comprehensive; the old school buildings were closed prior to 1999, with pupils transferred to a new build on a greenfield site nearby at The Park. The school's intake is taken from a number of schools known as the'family of schools'; the list includes King Edward School, Sutton Road School, St Peter's School, High Oakham School and Newgate Primary School. The school uniform includes distinctive green blazers for both girls; the school colours are green and gold, the school emblem is a rearing griffin within a shield with the academy's motto, Latin: Nil mortalibus ardui est, meaning "nothing is impossible for humankind" emblazoned upon it. The Brunts Academy's school song was composed in 1944 by former music teachers H S Rosen and A D Sanders. In 2002, there were nearly 1,500 pupils in the school, of whom fewer than 1,300 were at age 16 or below.

The school achieved 57% A-C passes with only 5% achieving no passes at all. This was 5 % better than 10 % above the national average. Overall the school is characterised by a high proportion of white pupils compared with the national average and nearly all students have English as their first language. Attainment is "broadly average" and at the inspection of the school by Her Majesty's Inspectorate in 2009, the school was assessed as "satisfactory" with higher marks for its pastoral care.
