The Association for Demand Response & Smart Grid (ADS) is a nonprofit organization that was formed to deliver services to help its members in the conduct of their work and in the attainment of their personal, corporate and governmental objectives. It consists of professionals and organizations involved in demand response and smart grid.
Olivine stated that its DR (Demand Response) management software is a comprehensive solution, offering a rich set of capabilities and information to all involved parties and ensuring that each user has the right tools to maximize the value of the demand response initiative.
The Vermont Energy Investment Corporation (VEIC) exclaimed that it has formulated an objective that will reduce 20 million tons of greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) (carbon ton equivalent) per year by 2027. Its planning engineers specialize in state and regional demand-side planning and understanding the potential of renewable resources.
EnergyHub said that it is a privately held startup with focus on building systems that help people bring down energy consumption and save money. It helps utilities to better engage with customers which in turn will lead to improved program performance for both demand response and energy efficiency without additional cost.
