Discover why Discover why Austin Energy was recognized in the 13th PLMA Awards as a technology pioneer for its comprehensive approach to evolving its legacy DR initiatives.

Austin Energy was one of the first to successfully harness the BYOT (Bring Your Own Thermostat) concept. It did so by partnering with technology manufacturers, and actively promoting the utilization of open standards and protocols to effectively integrate the BYOT participants into their residential DR program. The utility enhanced its legacy C&I DR programs utilizing a similar strategy that incorporates open protocols and EPRI’s Demand Response Automation System in its C&I AutoDR program. An example of the results are that one building that historically was able to reduce load by about 25 KW per event has increased its load shedding to over 100 KW with Auto DR.

Plan to join PLMA for a dialogue with these industry thought leaders.
