What is OpenADR?

Demand Response (DR) and Distributed Energy Resources (DER) programs help utilities maintain grid reliability and enable customers to realize significant value. Unfortunately, existing proprietary solutions add unnecessary cost and complexity. The Open Automated Demand Response (OpenADR) protocol was created to standardize, automate and simplify DR/DER to enable utilities to cost-effectively meet growing energy demand, and for customers to control their energy future.
