The OpenADR Alliance, a nonprofit corporation supporting the development, adoption and compliance of the Open Automated Demand Response (OpenADR) smart grid standard, says there are now more than 50 certified products conforming to the 2.0a and 2.0b Profile Specifications.

"The increasing availability of OpenADR 2.0 certified products is a clear indicator of how effectively the OpenADR standard addresses the market need for demand response programs," says Barry Haaser, managing director, OpenADR Alliance. "Our 100 members understand the value that certified products deliver to their customers and the ability to sell them to a broader range of customers."

International support for the OpenADR standard was advanced by the recent action of the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC), which approved the OpenADR 2.0b Profile Specification as a publicly available specification - (PAS) IEC/PAS 62746-10-1 - to be the foundation of a new commission standard to be developed. Additional work is underway within the IEC to address compatibility with the Common Information Model (CIM). The OpenADR 2.0a and 2.0b Profile Specifications have also been added to the SGIP Catalog of Standards, a resource for utilities, manufacturers, regulators, consumers and other smart grid stakeholders seeking acceptable industry standards.
