Brownouts got you fried? The Open Automated Demand Response API (OpenADR) aims to improve a critical aspect of handling the power load: improving Demand Response (DR) to electricity needs. Understanding demand, communicating demand and acting on it are all essential elements of effective DR. The SOAP/XML API is all about helping grid managers use common standards to leverage the OpenADR specifications.
The Coolclimate Calculator helps end users calculate their carbon footprint--and look at tools for reducing it. The API allows integration of the survey into third party apps.
