Control systems for electrical microgrids rely ever more on heteroge- neous off-the-shelf technology for hardware, software and networking among the intelligent electronic devices that are associated with dispersed energy re- sources. For distributed microgrid applications in a dynamic environment, overlay networks provide an opportunity for a flexible and robust logical com- munication infrastructure among these intelligent electronic devices. Agora is a semantic overlay network that allows to efficiently route queries -related to mi- crogrid control- in the overlay network, based on an XML description of the static and dynamic characteristics of the intelligent electronic devices. It is ro- bust against changes in the microgrid and ICT infrastructure, and provides graceful degradation in case of unrecovered failures
