Automated Demand Response Based on the OpenADR Specification: Adoption, Technology Development, Opportunities and Challenges, and Market Forecasts

The release of the OpenADR 2.0A specification, in August 2012, and the forthcoming launch of OpenADR 2.0B are likely to fuel strong demand for OpenADR in the United States and internationally. These specifications will also have a profound impact on how the utility industry uses automated demand response (ADR). OpenADR will not only open up new demand response (DR) program opportunities for electricity providers and their end-use customers, but will also lead to increased business prospects for technology vendors who can take advantage of the growing market demand for their newly developed and certified products, based on an OpenADR specification.

The main attractions of OpenADR are improved predictability, reliability, and speed of ADR. Interoperability of different technologies, low cost, and the ability to enable price-based DR programs are also key advantages. Pike Research anticipates that the driving market forces that are fueling demand for OpenADR will be very strong and are expected to offset any potential negative market forces. OpenADR is projected to grow at a robust compound annual growth rate of over 92% between 2012 and 2018, at which point it will be part of ADR programs in over 79,500 building sites globally.

This Pike Research report examines the development and launch of OpenADR 2.0A and 2.0B, along with the market drivers and challenges for OpenADR in general. Key industry players are discussed and technology issues around the new specification are explored in detail. The study also includes market forecasts for ADR sites with OpenADR and for spending on OpenADR-enabled ADR systems through 2018.
