OpenADR International Symposium is a Must-Attend Event

Why the OpenADR International Symposium is a Must-Attend Event – By Rolf Bienert, Managing and Technical Director, OpenADR Alliance

We all have hectic schedules these days and finding time to attend events has become more and more difficult. Most would agree, however, that networking with industry colleagues and subject matter experts in person offers an undeniable benefit, thanks to the new business and learning opportunities that are created.

The upcoming OpenADR international Symposium – open to all industry professionals – is a great example of such an opportunity. The event features a robust, interactive agenda designed to help those responsible for DR/DER program development or management to gain a better understanding of how the OpenADR standard is being applied in the electricity market and other distribution system reliability initiatives. The Symposium’s content has been developed for program staff from electric utilities, community/aggregators, and other energy service providers, as well as policy makers and regulators, researchers and controls suppliers, who share a common interest in standardized, automated demand response technology.

If you have been thinking about joining the OpenADR Alliance, or simply want to learn more, this will be your best opportunity to meet and network with other members and learn more about the Alliance’s key initiatives for 2019 and beyond.

Here are some of the reasons to attend:

  • Gain insight from PG&E and partners Lawrence Berkeley Labs and the California Energy Commission on where OpenADR is today with code and protocol development.
