Demand to Grid Lab

The Demand to Grid Laboratory is a working environment to demonstrate and test OpenADR compliant devices. It comprises several large home appliances (washer, dryer, refrigerator, and electric heat pump water heater) as well as OpenADR enabled lighting, electric vehicle charger and other devices. The space is specially wired to incorporate a non-utility reporting Itron smart meter to allow testing of device interactions with the Zigbee Smart Energy Protocol 1.x radio incorporated within the smart meter.
