What is OpenADR?

OpenADR (Automated Demand Response) is a high-level computer-to-computer communication protocol, a product of the Smart Grid initiative. Its purpose is to provide a standard way for utility suppliers to automatically and securely communicate with their customers’ building systems to reduce energy demand during critical periods.

Its purpose is to provide a standard way for utility suppliers to automatically and securely communicate with their customers’ building systems to reduce energy demand during critical periods. OpenADR can also be used to encourage voluntary reductions and rescheduling through dynamic (real-time or forecast) time-of-day pricing. An early version (OpenADR 1.0) was primarily used as an experimental development platform by a few utilities in North America. The current version (OpenADR 2.0) was released in late 2013 and is being adopted and gaining recognition as an international standard. Implementation of version 2.0 is still in the early stages and as with any new standard, some issues and conflicting interpretations are being resolved through experience.

Automated Logic Sponsored WebCAST Assessing your BAS for Optimal Results

ALC WN 2014

It is a fact of life that buildings change. And as those changes add up — whether it’s new uses of a space or reduced lighting loads due to improved technology — it’s important that the building automation system (BAS) keep up. But in many buildings, the BAS hasn’t kept up. As a result, a BAS assessment is a key opportunity for many facility managers to improve building efficiency.This webcast will identify the steps to take when preparing for — and undergoing — a BAS evaluation. From design documents to verification to occupant interviews, the presentation will address how you can assess your current BAS and determine if an upgrade (including some low- or no-cost improvements) or replacement is needed.

Learning objectives:

  • Understand how to prepare for a BAS evaluation and what you should look for during the assessment.
  • Determine how to prioritize the results of the evaluation and determine next steps.
  • Learn about updates to BAS technologies and how they impact today’s facilities.
