This software is a virtual top node (VTN) as defined in the OpenADR Alliance’s OpenADR 2.0 Profile B Specification, updated July 1, 2013. OpenADR is a machine-to-machine interface that defines the information model, transport and security mechanisms, and the manner in which data is exchanged between two end points. OpenADR 2.0 is an open specification that defines how information is communicated between an electricity service provider and customers, but it does not purport to define how either end point uses the information. This VTN application is one example of how the specification can be applied. This open source application is designed to provide users with a reference implementation for the study of the OpenADR 2.0b interface, its information model, XML payloads, interactions with a VEN, and many other uses.

Benefits and Value

  • To provide the electric power industry with a research tool to demonstrate and test the OpenADR 2.0 communication specification in different use cases.
  • To identify and correct potential gaps in the OpenADR 2.0 specification that can only be identified through a wide range of implementations.
  • To accelerate the commercialization and deployment of OpenADR-based products and service.
