I wrote the other day about the current trend of power companies going SOA. BlueStar, an energy company in the DC area, is a classic use case for SOA. BlueStar buys electricity on the broader market and resells it to residential and business customers. BlueStar CTO Tom Keen says the key is to schedule delivery in an optimal way. This means managing the flow of information, such as billing and purchasing transactions, across many actors: power generators, transmission operators, local distribution companies, and customers.
