OpenADR (Automated Demand Response) is an open, highly secure, two-way information exchange model and global Smart Grid standard. OpenADR standardizes the message format used for Auto-Demand Response (DR) and Distributed Energy Resource (DER) Management so that dynamic price and reliability signals can be exchanged in a uniform and interoperable fashion among utilities, ISOs, energy management and control systems.

Itron’s IntelliSOURCE is OpenADR 2.0a and 2.0b VTN certified. Using OpenADR allows utilities and cities to reduce costs and improve performance by providing the flexibility to leverage more types of DERs and devices, and can improve grid stabilization and reliability, power quality, pipeline management and conservation efforts.
