What It Is and How It Works

OpenADR 2.0 is an Internet protocol we use to communicate with equipment at your facilities to automatically reduce demand (electrical load) during Demand Response (DR) program events. We send DR event or price notifications through a system called the Demand Response Automation Server (DRAS), which uses OpenADR technology to communicate with your OpenADR device or energy management system (EMS). You can configure your DRAS account to receive event notifications, adjust shed signals, and also enable automated dispatch during DR events.

To receive a DR event notification via the DRAS, you must install and configure an eligible OpenADR client. You may qualify for incentives to offset the purchase and installation costs of technology and equipment.
