Palo Alto, Calif.-based AutoGrid Systems has announced that its flagship application, the Demand Response Optimization and Management System (DROMS), and its embedded OpenDR Server 2.0 have been certified for compliance with the OpenADR 2.0a profile specification.

AutoGrid's OpenDR Server 2.0 is available as a stand-alone product or can be integrated within DROMS. In addition, the company says its cloud-based OpenDR Server 2.0 can be integrated into other third-party applications.

Certification ensures that AutoGrid’s technology will be compatible with software, hardware and other technologies based on either OpenADR 1.0 or OpenADR 2.0a. Over 80 companies and organizations are members of the OpenADR Alliance.

"The OpenADR standard allows utilities and energy service providers to implement automated demand response programs in a scalable, open and economical manner," says Barry Haaser, managing director of the OpenADR Alliance.

According to AutoGrid, DROMS replaces proprietary infrastructure with advanced software analytics delivered through a secure, reliable cloud-based service, and it has been tested to simultaneously support over 1 million OpenADR clients.
