LD+A, August 2017: Commercial Lighting's Role in Automated Demand Response
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.
How can we increase these options and tap more lighting systems for actual ADR program participation? This article, first published in the August 2017 edition of LD+A magazine, provides insights and recommendations for increasing the demand for automated demand responsive lighting systems including CEA efforts to improve ADR requirements contained in California's Building Energy Efficiency Standards.
