About Demand Response

Demand Response Pioneer

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 (DR) 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. ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

The days of simply hoping that homeowners will sign up for DR programs are long gone. Fortunately, Honeywell's trusted name as a residential comfort leader combined with our smart grid technology and expertise are helping utilities engage more residential customers. 

Utilities tend to overlook small business customers for program design and implementation because they can be hard to reach. Honeywell helps utilities connect with these customers through technology that small business owners value; including solutions that improve comfort and lower energy costs such as remote temperature sensing, occupied/unoccupied status, control economizers and more. Honeywell technology also enables small business customers to use DR enabled thermostats, encouraging participation in DR programs.

Commercial buildings and industrial facilities offer unique load-shedding challenges because of their energy requirements and the need to avoid interrupting daily operations. In addition, no two facilities are alike, so the shed strategy needs to be customized. Despite the challenge, the commercial and industrial market represents a huge opportunity for utilities to meet their DR objectives. 

  • Seamless delivery – Single, integrated platform for all customers with a proven, user-friendly signaling engine enabled to fit virtually any DR program needs
  • Scalability – Software as a Service (SaaS​) technology model efficiently deploys utility DR programs
  • Security – Secure, cloud-based communications create a direct path to a utility and are in line with the leading industry standards
  • Transparency – Two-way messaging broadcasts price and signals directly from a utility to various load control devices ​​​​
Whether it is Residential, Small Business or Commercial​ & Industrial programs, Honeywell helps utilities by identifying and recruiting the right customers and then developing shed strategies tailored to both the customer and the needs of the utility. Together, with our customers and partners, we are reshaping the way the world uses energy.​
