The Association for Demand Response & Smart Grid (ADS), a nonprofit organization based in Washington, D.C., has announced the addition of five new members: Duke Energy, EnerNOC, Steffes Corp., Corporate Systems Engineering and Silver Spring Networks.

Dan Delurey, executive director of ADS, commented on the companies.

"We are excited to have these new members join ADS and help us grow our ability to serve the needs of the DR and smart grid community," he said. "Duke Energy is now the largest utility in the nation, and its membership will help us expand the network of utility expertise in the organization. EnerNOC is one of the world's largest providers of demand response, and recently, the company has staked a leadership position in energy efficiency by leveraging its automated fault detection and analytics software.

“Steffes Corp. is a leading provider of thermal storage systems and is now deploying technology to use them to provide DR services,” Delurey continued. “Corporate Systems Engineering is one of the companies providing technology and services to utilities and others that help them manage and control the demand response resources on their systems. And Silver Spring Networks is a leading platform and solutions provider for smart energy networks that enable utilities to introduce efficiencies, integrate renewable energy, and empower customers to monitor and manage consumption.”
