This is a very big deal. To foster the adoption and deployment of Automated Demand Response solutions, the industry needs an interoperable, open, standard.
Open ADR 2.0 appears to be well on it’s way to being that standard – significant adoption by a number of major utilities, along with the growing number of major vendors supporting Open ADR, add to it’s critical mass.
With traction at IEC, this standard is poised to be adopted internationally. That will also encourage the adoption in the US.
