Santa Clara BuilConn

  Girish Ghatikar  LBL

The development of the “Open Automated Demand Response Communication Standards” (OpenADR) that began in 2002 following the California electricity crisis will be featured in May 19th OpenADR Workshop in conjunction with DR-Expo at the Connectivity Week, Santa Clara, CA.   The research is carried out by the PIER Demand Response Research Center, which is managed by Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.  Six years of research, development, and demonstration have led to these standards.  The research explored the feasibility of developing low cost communications infrastructure to improve the reliability, repeatability, robustness, and cost-effectiveness of DR in commercial buildings.  OpenADR defines an “open data model” and outlines secure and reliable communications standards using web service oriented architecture (SOA) to send DR Price and reliability signals to end-use customer systems.
