Newport Beach, Calif.-based REGEN Energy says that its Swarm Energy Management wireless demand response solution is officially OpenADR 2.0a certified. Many utilities, including Pacific Gas & Electric, Southern California Edison, and San Diego Gas & Electric, have mandated the use of OpenADR 2.0-certified products to implement hands-free demand response starting in 2013, the company notes.

"We're delighted that the OpenADR Alliance included a formal certification process as part of the 2.0 standard, starting with the 2.0a specification. This provides our curtailment service provider partners, customers and utilities the assurance that their investment in our technology is future-proof," says Roman Kulyk, REGEN Energy's chief technology officer. "The added features of 2.0 that we have embedded into our Swarm technology will help the entire ecosystem of utilities and building operators expand into new and more sophisticated load management programs, including fast response services such as renewables integration and frequency regulation services."

For REGEN customers currently using Swarm Energy Management's OpenADR 1.0 implementation, the migration to 2.0 is effortless and has no impact on customer operations, the company adds.
