Demand response system certification

Cooper Power Systems and Honeywell joint demand response system have received certification for ZigBee Smart Energy version 1.1.

09/22/2011


Cooper Power Systems and Honeywell joint demand response system have received certification for ZigBee Smart Energy version 1.1, an open communication standard for Smart Grid products that helps manage energy use and delivery. The system combines the Honeywell UtilityPRO demand response thermostat with the Cooper Power Systems Yukon advanced energy services software and communication technology. The certification means the thermostat can receive demand response and other signals from the utility via the customer’s smart meter or in-home gateway. UtilityPRO and Yukon enable a variety of control strategies that allow utilities to implement direct load control, offer dynamic pricing, and improve energy management through two-way communication. The collective decrease in demand helps stabilize energy prices, prevent disruptive brownouts and blackouts, and reduce the need for additional power plants.
