The Association for Demand Response & Smart Grid (ADS), a Washington, D.C.-based nonprofit organization, has welcomed three additional members to its group: the California Independent System Operator (ISO), Dimplex North America and Negawatt Business Solutions.

"California is a leader in demand response, and California ISO is now moving to facilitate the increased use of demand response at the wholesale level; Dimplex directly serves residential customers with its smart-grid-ready heating appliances; and Negawatt Business Solutions works with commercial customers to optimally manage electricity use," says Dan Delurey, executive director of ADS. “These entities exemplify the many ways that demand response is being deployed today, and we look forward to their contributions to ADS and the added diversity they will bring to it."
