Connexx Energy Inc., a subsidiary of Lynxspring Inc. and developer of open technologies for building automation and energy management solutions, has joined the OpenADR Alliance.

This announcement comes on top of Connexx Energy's recent introduction of its new OpenADR 2.0 a-certified Virtual End Node driver for the Niagara AX platform. According to the company, this driver permits rapid deployment of standards-based AutoDemand Response solutions for Niagara-based commercial deployments.

Formed in 2010, the OpenADR Alliance fosters the development, adoption, technical activities and compliance of the Open Automated Demand Response (OpenADR) standards through collaboration, education, training, testing and certification.

"A critical element in automated demand response is technology; by developing demand response solutions based on OpenADR standards, we are enabling utilities, along with commercial and industrial facilities, to have a direct link that delivers fast and reliable load reductions, as well as cost savings without having to put in a lot of time and manual intervention,” says Anno Scholten, president of Connexx Energy.
