SOURCE Association for Demand Response & Smart Grid
WASHINGTON, Oct. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Three more leaders in demand response and smart grid have joined the Association for Demand Response and Smart Grid (ADS), the national DR and smart grid organization. They come aboard as ADS, together with other national groups, prepares for next week's National Summit on Integrating Energy Efficiency and Smart Grid (www.energyefficiencysmartgrid.org). The new members are Olivine, Inc, Vermont Energy Investment Corporation (VEIC), and EnergyHub.
ADS is a non-profit organization based in Washington, DC, that focuses on development and exchange of information among policymakers, utilities, technology companies, and other stakeholders. It includes as members companies and organizations, as well as individuals who consider themselves demand response (DR) and smart grid professionals.
"We are excited to have these new members join ADS and help us grow our ability to serve the needs of the DR and smart grid community," said Dan Delurey, Executive Director of ADS. "Olivine offers a number of options to support DR in the wholesale market, and is also a DR provider and scheduling coordinator. VEIC is a great asset to the discussion on how best to integrate energy efficiency with demand response as they have a strong focus on reducing the overall costs of energy use. And EnergyHub offers in-home options to consumers for reducing their energy using a variety of resources.
"We are especially happy to have these new members come on board as we ramp up for the National Summit on Integrating Energy Efficiency and Smart Grid," said Delurey. "They have already begun to help us as we make final preparations for the event coming up October 15 and 16."
