OpenADR Alliance in Action

The timing has never been better for this dynamic open standard to take off. This Earth Month, our sponsor, IPKeys and member, Candi Controls, announced a partnership to bring “Smart Grid Benefits to the Internet of Things.” By reducing energy consumption and costs, these OpenADR Alliance members are achieving environmental facing goals in a meaningful way.


Honeywell And CPS Energy recently announced efforts to help make the electrical grid smarter and more reliable. The two-year program is expected to be the largest ADR deployment by a municipal utility, and will build on a successful pilot project that CPS Energy and Honeywell completed last year.

PLMA in Denver was filled with insight into the state of the industry and it was apparent that interest in OpenADR continues to mount. As states and countries begin to work toward their individual environmental goals, OpenADR will play a key role. To recap, here are some pictures equipped with short videos: http://bit.ly/PLMASpring2014OADRHighlights

Technical Update

OpenADR 2.0 Enters the SGIP Catalog of Standards
The OpenADR 2.0 'a' and 'b' Profile Specifications were approved by the members of SGIP to enter the Catalog of Standards (CoS). The CoS is a compendium of standards, practices, guidelines and other technical documents considered relevant for the development and deployment of a robust and interoperable Smart Grid. Many in the energy industry refer to standards in the CoS for implementation because of the rigorous, multi-part review performed by industry experts in the SGIP process.


New Certified Products:

More certified products were added to our database, adding members THG Energy Solutions, LLC , ecobee, Byucksan PowerEnergy Pool and Sumitomo to the list of member companies with OpenADR 2.0b certified offerings.
