The OpenADR Alliance has released the OpenADR 2.0b Profile Specification, a full-feature specification for energy management solutions supporting demand response (DR) and distributed energy resource management for both wholesale and retail programs.

The Alliance says the OpenADR 2.0b Profile Specification builds upon the OpenADR 2.0a Profile Specification released in August 2012 for simple devices such as thermostats, and adds enhanced DR event and price scheduling, robust reporting services, and a number of operational and administrative updates to simplify customer participation management and system registration. The 2.0b enhancements enable independent system operators, utilities and aggregators to better monitor curtailment levels among DR event participants, the Alliance adds.

Alliance members and test tool partner QualityLogic have spent the past 10 months developing the specification and preparing it for market, with QualityLogic releasing the test tool for the OpenADR 2.0b Profile Specification concurrently with the release of the specification. The OpenADR 2.0 a and b Certification Test Tool is used by the Alliance for product certification and is also available to developers of OpenADR 2.0-compliant products for pre-certification.
