OpenADR Alliance to Showcase OpenADR DER & DR Solutions, Host Education Seminar at DistribuTECH 2022

The OpenADR Alliance is broadening its outreach in 2022 in response to the accelerating certification of products and growing deployment of OpenADR-based solutions. The OpenADR Alliance along with co-exhibitors EEBUS, Grid Solutions and QualityLogic, will showcase solutions and developer resources based on the OpenADR standard for renewable energy, energy storage, demand response and electric vehicle charging at DistribuTECH 2022 (booth 2343). Additionally, more than a dozen members will be showcasing smart grid solutions throughout the exhibit floor.   

Also, the OpenADR Alliance has expanded its certification program for products based on EcoPort, the new consumer-facing brand name for the CTA 2045 technical standard. Local utilities can now support EcoPort-enabled water heaters and other appliances as part of their local peak-load management or time of use rate programs. Today's smart appliances will now be able to align energy consumption to minimize electric grid costs, as well as the appliance's energy usage with times of variable renewable energy availability. This will result in millions of tons of carbon emissions saved every year. 

Join the Alliance for an OpenADR Education Seminar to learn more about the new EcoPort initiative for grid-enabled water heaters and other appliances, as well as how the OpenADR standard is facilitating grid integration of rapidly increasing DERs and EV charging solutions. Hear the latest global developments and success stories from industry leaders. The education session will be held on Tuesday, May 24, from 11:30 - 1:30 at the Omni Hotel across from the Kay Bailey Hutchison convention center.  Click here to register. Space is limited, so don't delay.  

WHEN: May 23-25, 2022  

WHERE:  Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center, Dallas, TX in booth 2343

About the OpenADR Alliance 

The OpenADR Alliance, a nonprofit corporation created to foster the development, adoption and compliance of the Open Automated Demand Response (OpenADR) standard, helps utilities manage the growing pool of distributed energy resources (DER), which includes renewable energy, energy storage, demand response and electric vehicle charging. The OpenADR standard supports communications to all DER resources to manage changes in load shape, energy inputs and power characteristics of DER assets. More information can be found at The Alliance has also launched a new testing and certification program for EcoPort, for appliances demonstrating compliance with the CTA Standard.  


EEBUS is a registered non-profit organization with members not only being affected by but also pro-actively driving the digitalization of energy transition. EEBUS has a cross-industry membership structure, both associations as well as leading companies, reflecting all requirements from energy transition. EEBUS provides use cases to combine energy-relevant devices such as EV, HVAC or RES and the grid into one system.
