IPKeys, PJM, Walmart, BerkeleyLab and Schneider Electric Demonstrate Energy Management Advances with OpenADR 2.0b Market Pilots

IPKeys announced today 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™). The pilot participants - Walmart, PJM, Lawrence Berkley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) and Schneider Electric – succeeded in showing the technological feasibility of using the OpenADR 2.0b profile in the field for ancillary services and regulation signaling.http://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20140513005231/en/IPKeys-PJM-Walmart-BerkeleyLab-Schneider-Electric-Demonstrate#.U3IzsLTiPR4

OpenADR Helps Building Owners and Operators Meet Title 24 California Compliance Requirements for Connecting Buildings to the Smart Grid

The Open Automated Demand Response (OpenADR) Smart Grid standard enables compliance with the new Title 24 California Energy Code, in effect Jan. 1, 2014. Since OpenADR is being designed into most building management and lighting control systems, California business owners and operators can more easily comply with the changes to Title 24, originally adopted in 1978 to regulate California’s energy crisis by requiring any construction of a new building, or alterations made to an existing building, to meet certain standards. The new code includes more stringent regulations for demand response (DR) capabilities within lighting and HVAC in both residential and non-residential buildings, enabling better management of peak energy demand, costs and overall energy usage.

California's new building code to mandate demand response

Starting in June, California’s updated Title 24 building code will require that lighting, HVAC, new or retrofit thermostats and a range of other systems come equipped with demand response capability.http://www.utilitydive.com/news/californias-new-building-code-to-mandate-demand-response/247680/

OpenADR Standard Published as an International Publicly Available Specification

 

In February, Open Automated Demand Response (OpenADR) achieved another milestone toward becoming an international standard when theInternational Electrotechnical Commission (IEC), a renowned standards development organization, released a profile of OpenADR 2.0 as a Publicly Available Specification (PAS). This action recognizes OpenADR as a standard that will enable our electricity systems to be more responsive and smarter about operating under numerous economic, environmental, and security restraints. OpenADR 2.0 is already a national standard in the United States, as the result of Smart Grid standards interoperability activities coordinated by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and Smart Grid Interoperability Panel (SGIP).

It seems like every big smart grid and building energy management vendor is rolling out its own version of equipment to support OpenADR, the technology emerging as a standard for automating the interplay of grid and utility commands with building energy controls. The list includes Honeywell and AkuacomAlstom and UISOLSchneider Electric and IPKeys, EnerNOC, Comverge, Cisco, Hitachi, Toshiba, and a long list of other OpenADR Alliance members.

OpenADR Alliance Announces First Open Automated Demand Response 2.0b Certified Products

The OpenADR Alliance today announced the first OpenADR 2.0b-certified devices from a number of member companies, including: AutoGrid, EnerNOC, Fujitsu, Honeywell and IPKeys Technologies. The OpenADR 2.0b Profile Specification released in July of this year, is a full-feature specification for complex energy management solutions supporting automated demand response (ADR) and distributed energy resource (DER) management for both wholesale and retail programs. ADR programs enable customers to reduce their energy usage during times of peak demand, high wholesale market prices or grid stress.
