Join the OpenADR Alliance

The OpenADR Alliance is open to all interested stakeholders sharing a common interest in facilitating and accelerating the use and adoption of the OpenADR standard for price- and reliability-based demand response.

Membership levels include all the stakeholders and are classified by vendor community (such as systems integrators or control vendors) and utilities, government, research agencies (such as facilities or regulators). A Board of Directors comprised of Sponsor Members directs the OpenADR Alliance. The Board of Director members provide the leadership and direction necessary to guide the OpenADR Alliance and participate in setting the strategic objectives and operating policies of the consortium. The OpenADR Alliance strives to represent a fair cross-section of the various stakeholder community using policies and guidelines to ensure that the organization maintains a balance of consumers, service providers, suppliers, and other significant stakeholders.
