During the hottest days of the year, electric and gas utility companies often offer technology and/or financial incentives to encourage both residential and commercial customers to temporarily reduce or shift their energy use. Such demand reduction is good for all involved, lowering the strain on the grid, helping assure that essential services can be met, and conserving resources. These moments are called Demand Response (DR) events. They occur rarely and just for short periods, so customers often don’t even know they’re happening. But they’re an essential part of smart energy grid management.
Honeywell’s leadership as a pioneer in Automated Demand Response (ADR) provides two-way communication solutions to help utilities manage energy demand efficiently, effectively and responsibly. Honeywell not only provides Demand Response technology and management systems to utilities, but also helps utilities reach out to their customers with proven methods to communicate the program details and benefits. Honeywell’s ADR solutions provide a safe, secure and standardized platform for marketing and implementing a successful demand response program.
