The Energy Kernel System (EKS) project has reached the final year of its three year duration. The modus operandi has been designed, a class taxonomy devised and the software implementation process commenced. This paper describes the elements of the EKS as it is now envisaged and elaborates on the object oriented programming (OOP) approach being employed in its construction. In particular, the form and content of the EKS classes, the role of inheritance and the scope of the in?built domain theories are elaborated.
