OpenADR News Alerts


IPKeys announced the successful conclusion of multi-phase pilots at PJM Interconnection for Ancillary Services (Synchronous Reserve and Regulation) utilizing IPKeys’ OpenADR 2.0b certified Energy Interop Server & System (EISS™).

Powerit Solutions, an international energy management technology company, announced receipt of the OpenADR 2.0b Profile Specification certification. OpenADR 2.0b is a full-feature specification for complex energy management solutions supporting automated demand response (DR) and distributed energy resource management for both wholesale and retail programs.

OpenADR Alliance in Action

Summer is almost upon us again and automated demand response is becoming more of an all seasons approach to energy and economic savings.  For commercial, industrial and residential properties, Enerliance recently shared demand response is “good for people, businesses, and the environment, and will unlock a future that relies on intelligent, resilient, and clean energy solutions.”    


Given the need to communicate the clear benefits of automated demand response, it is fitting that CPS Energy was awarded a “Griddie” for Excellence in Communications by the Association for Demand Response and Smart Grid. Another award winning member to note is Comverge, which earned Smart Grid Product of the Year via TMCnet.

Technical Update

The Implementation Working Group (IWG) is looking for your input! If you are involved in the creation or definition of DR programs please join us at the IWG to help define the standardized OpenADR DR Programs. This effort will help DR program operators and vendors to make the right decisions for their services and products and will lower the barrier to enter the DR market for all.
