IES LD+A Research Matters: Commercial Lighting's Role in Automated Demand Response Programs

08/14/2017

After nearly two decades of support and research focused on automated demand response (ADR), lighting remains underutilized as a demand response resource. Beginning in 2007 with the publication of the first open standard dedicated to ADR connectivity and communication (www.openadr.org), research and development efforts have resulted in a myriad of products and strategies designed to promote and advance ADR; however, recent studies demonstrate that commercially available, lighting-specific ADR products remain sparse.
