OpenADR Demand Response
In an AMI application, meters measure electricity consumption, with “Peak Load Management” ensuring the best usage, energy allocation, and efficiency of the smart grid. Precise control over load management devices makes it possible to offer superior demand response programs. “Demand Response” measures how end-users’ electricity usage differs from their normal consumption patterns as the price of electricity changes over time, or when incentive payments lead to lower electricity use when wholesale market prices are high, or system reliability is in jeopardy. “Demand Response” measures changes in electricity usage by end-users from their normal consumption patterns in response to changes in the price of electricity over time, or to incentive payments designed to induce lower electricity use at times of high wholesale market prices or when system reliability is jeopardized.


  Effects of Demand Side Management
Demand Response (DR) programs help utilities maintain grid reliability and enable customers to realize significant value. Unfortunately, existing proprietary solutions add unnecessary cost and complexity. With OpenADR Alliance, which provides a standardized design to automate and simplify DR, utilities can meet growing energy demands in a cost-effective way, and help customers maintain control over their future energy usage.

Moxa’s UC-8110 is an OpenADR 2.0a/b-compliant Virtual End Node (VEN) device, with compliancy testing conducted by the Institute for Information Industry (III) in Taiwan. The UC-8110 is a part of the III’s SAVE platform, which is a cloud-based demand-side management system that provides interfaces to communicate with building control equipment and devices to carry out demand management services for smart grid and smart building applications.
