Demand Response Technology Evaluation of AutoDR Programmable Communicating Thermostats

The purpose of this study was to conduct field measurements to evaluate the Demand Response (DR) capabilities of Programmable Communicating Thermostats (PCTs) leveraging Open Automated Demand Response (OpenADR). This evaluation specifically relates to packaged rooftop Heating Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) units at fast food restaurants, a market segment generally outside of the OpenADR scope.
