The Demand Flexibility Communication Protocols project will have a significant future impact on how we operate future grids and support customer engagement in demand flexibility.  To explore why OpenADR has been selected as the communication protocol to be used in the trial, the Design Team hosted a webinar on Tuesday 13th December 2022.

During this webinar we heard from Brian Fitzgerald from EECA, Terry Paddy from Cortexo and Rodger Griffiths from Westpower.
