Energy management and procurement firm Texzon Utilities has received OpenADR 2.0b certification of its automated demand response (ADR) controller from the OpenADR Alliance, a nonprofit corporation created to foster the development and adoption of and compliance with the OpenADR smart grid standard.

Texzon notes that its SmartADR controller responds to utility-sponsored events and generates financial incentives through automated curtailment.

The company adds that the ADR controller provides seasonal, weekly and daily scheduling controls, allowing facilities to block out days of the week or hours of the day that are unavailable for demand response participation.
