June 6, 2012PRLog — QualityLogic Inc. announced that it will offer one-day workshops for companies and organizations interested in implementing OpenADR 2.0, a low-cost, speedy, reliable communications infrastructure that allows utilities and grid operators to send Demand Response (DR) signals directly to building automation and control systems on customers’ sites using a common language and existing communications technology. The workshops are endorsed by the OpenADR Alliance, a nonprofit corporation that promotes the development, adoption and compliance of the standard across the utility industry.

The OpenADR 2.0 Workshop focuses on providing a conceptual, as well as a detailed technical understanding of what OpenADR 2.0 is and how it works. Participants will become familiar with the OpenADR 2.0 technology; Certification Profiles a, b and c; the formal conformance certification program and the pre-certification tests and tools for these profiles and OpenADR 2.0 technology.

“OpenADR 2.0 will bring greater reliability, predictability and lower costs to demand-response solutions for commercial, industrial and residential applications,” said Dave Jollota, QualityLogic president and CEO. “We’re thrilled to help companies get a head start with this important Smart Grid standard through training, as well as certification tools.”

“Training early adopters of the OpenADR 2.0 standards and certification requirements will help ensure the rapid deployment of the OpenADR 2.0 specification and help ensure grid reliability throughout the industry,” said Rolf Bienert, technical director of the OpenADR Alliance.

The workshop is offered to staff of a single company or organization at or near their facility. This allows the team to derive maximum value from the expert instruction and resources without concern about confidentially issues.
