• The meeting will bring together utilities, energy service providers, policy makers and regulators, researchers and control suppliers who share a common interest in standardized, automated demand response technology. This meeting is designed to help those responsible for DR program development or management to gain a better understanding of how the OpenADR standard is being used in various markets, and how it can further the adoption of demand response.

• Drivers for OpenADR Adoption Title 24
