1. A system for operating a plurality of energy consuming devices, comprising:

  • a database storing at least one device driver, the at least one device driver operating at least one device controller, at least one of the device drivers comprising a database layer interface and a device layer interface;

    a network interface coupling the database with a network, the network coupled to the at least one device controller, the database transmitting the device layer interface over the network to the at least one device controller, the at least one device controller controlling a first energy consuming device of the plurality of energy consuming devices; and

    a second database storing at least one second device driver, the at least one second device driver operating the at least one device controller, at least one of the second device drivers comprising a second database layer interface and a second device layer interface;

    wherein the network interface couples the second database with the network, the second database transmitting the second device layer interface over the network to the at least one device controller when at least one of the databases fails and the at least one device driver fails.
