LD+A – CLTC and Berkeley Lab partnered to test the ADR-readiness of commercially available networked lighting control systems. All three systems tested were configured for automated demand response (ADR) communications, and all three successfully accessed the demand response automation server (DRAS) to retrieve DR events. The research indicates the potential for lighting control manufacturers to refine ADR software features in future product iterations, and it raises several compelling questions for discussion among utility leaders, regulators, rate payers, and others in the lighting industry and energy sectors.
