Electricity Over IP (EoIP)

Definition - What does Electricity Over IP (EoIP) mean?

Electricity over Internet Protocol (EoIP) is the process of transmitting electrical energy over a standard, IP-based network. It is a proposed scheme that has yet to be commonly implemented. It was published by the Internet Engineering Task Force in RFC 3251 in April 2002.

Electricity over IP ( EoIP) is pronounced as "yoyp."

Techopedia explains Electricity Over IP (EoIP)

EoIP was primarily conceived to facilitate distribution, reduce costs and improve the management of delivering electricity to consumers. It is also seen as a move to combine the electrical and Internet distribution links and networks together to eliminate redundant networks and reduce distribution costs. EoIP works on the Mostly Pointless Lamp Switching (MPLampS) architecture , which use IP packets to deliver electricity.

Electricity is digitized using the Discrete Voltage Encoding (DVE) scheme and is stored in IP packets as bit stream. It is than delivered to the recipient device/node or more specifically the low voltage electricity receptors (LER), each of which is identified by a unique IP address.
