Electric utilities DTE Energy and Consumers Energy, as well as global advisory services and software provider Nexant, have joined the Association for Demand Response & Smart Grid (ADS).

"Together, DTE Energy and Consumers Energy provide power to a majority of the state of Michigan. Both utilities have developed a number of demand response programs and have important lessons from their deployments that they can share with the larger DR and smart grid community," says Dan Delurey, executive director of ADS.

"Nexant is a leader in supporting companies in the energy industry in areas including demand response, smart grid, technology commercialization and consumer engagement, and can thus provide a range of expertise to the DR and smart grid community," he adds.

ADS is a nonprofit organization that focuses on the development and exchange of information among policymakers, utilities, technology companies and other DR and smart grid stakeholders.
