Itron Receives OpenADR Certification for its Distributed Energy Resource Management System (DERMS)
Itron’s OpenADR Certified DERMS Solution Brings Open Standards to Utilities and Their Customers
With Itron’s OpenADR-certified DERMS solution, utilities will be able to manage solar power, energy storage and electric vehicles in addition to managing grid-connected flexible loads such as water heaters, pool pumps, thermostats and HVACs – all via open standards. This will help reduce the risk of stranded assets and costs for the utility while driving adoption of grid-connected smart energy products and more cost-effective programs.
OpenADR-based solutions allow utilities to reap the benefits of Demand Response (DR) adoption and battery storage integration, while meeting standards that automate and simplify the use of DR programs worldwide, improving reliability and operational efficiency. Further OpenADR encourages more customers to participate in a broader array of Distributed Energy Management programs since customers are not locked into any particular vendor’s proprietary communication devices or standards.
