Austin Demand Response Combines EV Charging, Variety of Thermostats
Since February, Austin Energy has been conducting an automated demand response pilot for about 60 residential customers. The ADR program is unusual because it also combines electric vehicle charging stations and different types of thermostats.

Austin Energyâ€™s ADR program uses AutoGridâ€™s Demand Response Optimization and Management System (DROMS), and the EV charging stations come from ChargePoint.
