Demand Response Technology Evaluation of AutoDR Occupant Controlled Smart Thermostats

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the demand response (DR) capability of the new occupant controlled smart thermostat (OCST) technology. OCSTs are radio thermostats with communication modules that can communicate through an autonomous web-enabled energy management and automation system. For the study, four commercially available OCSTs and automation systems were installed in two fast food restaurants in the Inland Empire.
