    A Tech Close-Up news story about automated climate control in commercial locations in response to real-time signals from electric utilities. The goal is to reduce power demand at times of system overload. Participants in the development of this technology include Pacific Gas and Electric, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, numerous energy consultants, and commercial electricity consumers such as Ikea (featured here).

      The Demand Response Research Center (DRRC) at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory worked with California and the nation to develop an open standards communication specification for the automation of electricity demand response. This specification, known as Open Automated Demand Response (OpenADR), provides a non-proprietary interface that lets electricity providers send signals about electricity price and system grid reliability directly to customers over networks such as the Internet. The signals can be manual or automated. OpenADR supports interoperability among control equipment and energy markets, and cuts costs for providers and consumers. The OpenADR specification is supported by the U.S. Department of Energy, the National Institute of Standards and Technology Smart Grid Interoperability Standards effort.

        An EETD Seminar on August 31, 2012 - Speaker: Steven Florek, ColorPower Center, Berkeley, Cjavascript:void(0)alifornia ColorPower is a distributed, biologically-inspired, self-organizing aggregation software approach to demand response. It requires no HANs, no direct price signals, no load control programs to work, but instead follows a principle of automated volunteerism that minimizes individual inconvenience. It provides fast, reliable, and precise load shaping across large populations. We will present the science research, architecture, and economic theory behind ColorPower, and invite a research collaboration with LBNL to harmonize with OpenADR.
