Advances in automatic demand response (ADR) coupled with recent regulatory trends, developing capabilities of the smart grid, and the drive by customers to cut energy costs are leading to significant new opportunities for ADR. As variable-generation energy resources continue to require greater flexibility from the grid, network planners are looking to ADR as a valuable tool to meet this growing need.
The 3rd Annual Demand Response Virtual Summit on Thursday, March 20 is a full-day, 100% online conference that that brings together key thought leaders and practitioners to examine the current the opportunities and challenges associated with achieving DR’s full potential.
The OpenADR Alliance is pleased to serve as an Official Association Partner for this Virtual Summit, as a valuable channel through which to further the discussion of important ADR advances and issues.
