Texas-based utility Austin Energy has engaged energy intelligence software provider EnerNOC Inc. to help expand its Power Saver Load Co-op demand response program, with a focus on developing a plan for the implementation of automated demand response (AutoDR) utilizing the OpenADR 2.0 standard.

EnerNOC says its Utility Solutions team is advising and supporting Austin Energy in developing its Load Co-op program through several specific strategies, including the following:

- Assisting the utility's account representatives to target, recruit and engage best-fit commercial customers in the program through EnerNOC's cross-industry engineering and energy management services;

- Helping the utility's customers develop load-reduction plans and providing them with post-event performance coaching; and

- Supporting the utility in introducing AutoDR technologies to the program to help customers realize the full benefits of program participation with minimal impact on customer operations.
